Sunderland sign Campbell

Fraizer Campbell signs for Sunderland

Sunderland have signed Manchester United youngster Fraizer Campbell for a fee of £3.5million.

The fee could rise to £6 million depending upon his performances for the Black Cats. The player has signed on for a period of four years.

Its a major setback for Hull City and its manager, Phil Brown who looked like the front runners to sign the player who had a season with the Tigers where they qualified for the Premiership.

He played last season for Spurs on loan as part of a swap deal that brought Berbatov to Old Trafford. He had to endure a disappointing season as he made only 9 starts for the London based club.

He would look for more playing time at Sunderland under former Wigan Athletic manager, Steve Bruce.The transfer in itself though seems bizarre as Hull City were reportedly offering £5-6 million for the player. What brought about Manchester United's decision to offload him for a reduced fee is uncertain.
