Hull confident of signing Manchester United striker

Yes, that’s right, Wayne Rooney likes the idea of moving from rainy Manchester to Humberside in the summer and joining the Premier League new boys. Hang on, that’s not right, it’s actually Fraizer Campbell who could be making the permanent switch after helping the Tigers to achieve promotion in Saturday’s play-off final. The striker set up Dean Windass for the only goal of the game and Sky Sports reports that the City chairman wants to have the youngster for keeps after some impressive displays this season.

“The position with Fraizer is that he now goes back to Manchester United and Sir Alex has a decision to make,” Duffen told the Yorkshire Post.

“I am sure he will know whether Fraizer is ready to go into the first-team squad at United or not. If it is the latter, then there will be two options – one to loan Fraizer out for another year’s experience or, instead, to sell him.

“Obviously, if he chooses one of these two options then we would be interested and would then have a conversation with United. And I believe we would then have a very good chance of getting Fraizer.”

It’s clear that Hull are going to have to spend big in the summer if they are to stay in the Premier League by the end of next season. It’s hard to see Campbell getting much in the way of first-team football when you consider Rooney, Ronaldo, Tevez and Saha are his current competition, and Sir Alex Ferguson is always keen on making sure his starlets get plenty of match experience in the meantime.
