ShareDJ Campbell says he is leaving Blackpool so he can continue to play in the Premier League.

The striker, 29, was one of the Tangerines' key performers this season as he weighed in with 13 goals in their unsuccessful bid to avoid relegation.

Campbell only joined Blackpool from Leicester last summer but he has a ?1.25million buy-out clause in his contract, which the likes of Sunderland will try and activate.

The former Brentford and Birmingham hitman said: 'I love Blackpool and we had a better season than many people expected but to go down was heartbreaking.

'I played in the Prem before with Birmingham and maybe I wasn't ready for it then. But this time I was.

'There's nothing like playing at Old Trafford, Anfield and Stamford Bridge. Now I want more of it. I think I've proved I can play at the top.'
