Sunderland Clinch Fraizer Campbell Signing From Manchester United

After snubbing his former side Hull City, Fraizer Campbell has pitched up at the Stadium of Light...

Sunderland have completed the signing of Fraizer Campbell from Manchester United after the 21-year-old passed his medical.

The deal has been valued at an initial £3.5 million with the fee expected to rise to £6 million depending on performances.

The England under-21 international snubbed the overtures of Hull City to sign a four-year deal with the Black Cats. He starred for Phil Brown's side in their 2007/08 promotion campaign, in which he scored 15 goals.

Campbell spent the majority of last season on loan at Tottenham Hotspur, after being included as a makeweight for Dimitar Berbatov's transfer in the other direction.

He failed to hold a starting berth at White Hart Lane though and made only 22 appearances, scoring three times, for Spurs.

He was recently part of England's under-21 European Championship campaign but missed the final defeat to Germany through suspension.
