Manchester United Agree Deal for £6m Striker with Great Potential

Impressive young striker heads for exit

The Rumour

Manchester United have accepted a bid from Hull City for England Under-21 striker Fraizer Campbell.
Hull have been given permission to discuss personal terms with Campbell after agreeing a reported £6m fee.
Campbell, 21, scored 15 goals to help Phil Brown’s to promotion in 2008 during a successful loan spell at the KC Stadium during the 2007/08 season.

The Analysis

This was only a matter a time really. Frazier Campbell has spent the best part of two seasons on loan with varying degrees of success. His efforts helped Hull City into the Premier League when his fresh bustling style was too much for Championship defences. He then spent a season at Spurs which showed that at times he wasn’t quite ready for the Premier League game.

However the 21 year old Huddersfield lad has clearly shown he has a great deal of potential and it’s not surprise that Phil Brown has decided to snap up the striker on a permanent basis. Hull City don’t have a great deal to offer up front but have the very talented Geovanni to play in the hole behind the strikers and the likes of Caleb Folan, Marlon King and Daniel Cousin all failed to make the grade at the KC Stadium,

Campbell has it in him to be a striker who can become a consistent force in the top tier and the deal seems like a pretty good deal all round as Sir Alex has more than enough firepower in his established front line and young back up’s in Daniel Wellbeck and Federico Macheda.
