Tigers snap up Campbell

19 October 2007 07:23
Hull City have bolstered their striking options by landing Manchester United youngster Fraizer Campbell on loan. Campbell, 20, has joined the Tigers until January and will go straight into the squad for Saturday's Championship clash with high-flying Watford. "I don't think it's any secret that we like Fraizer and he's coming to us from a good club," first-team coach Steve Parkin told the club's official website. "We've watched Fraizer over a period of months rather than weeks. Our chief scout Bob Shaw has seen him on several occasions, as have Brian Horton and myself. "He was also on the television a number of times during Manchester United's pre-season because he played a lot of games. "I think we're all aware of his ability and what he can bring to us. It's all about giving him the confidence and opportunity to show that, which is something I'm sure we'll do." Campbell has made two first-team appearances for the Red Devils this season, including a Premier League debut in the Manchester derby back in August.
