Campbell unlikely to join former club Hull

Campbell unlikely to join former club Hull

Fraizer Campbell looks set to remain at Sunderland for the foreseeable future with an approach from Hull City not forthcoming.

The 25 year-old forward, who spent the 2007/08 on loan with the Tigers, has been linked with a return to the Humberside club on-loan.

Steve Bruce's side have already taken Ahmed Elmohamady and David Meyler on-loan from the Black Cats and a third raid on his former side looks unlikely with wages proving a major stumbling block.

The one-cap England international joined Sunderland three years ago from Manchester United for of £3.5m.

Since then injury has largely disrupted Campbell's progress on Wearside, making just 53 league appearances (29 starts) for the Lads and scoring just five times in the Premier League

Campbell's last league goal for the club came against Norwich City on February 1 in a 3-0 win over the Canaries.

Just days earlier the forward had notched against Middlesbrough in the F.A Cup and those goals earned the Huddersfield-born striker his maiden England cap under Stuart Pearce.

With just over six months left on his contract at the Stadium of Light, there has been no indication from Martin O'Neill as to whether or not Campbell remains in his plans.

Without a Premier League start this term, the 5'8 forward made his first substitute appearance in a month against Norwich on Sunday.

Time could be running out for the one-time prodigy.
