Football League Transfer Talk: Including Campbell and Becchio

Hull City Fans

Hull City, Huddersfield Town, Blackpool, Leeds United and Derby County all feature.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce has confirmed the Tigers are in talks with QPR over striker DJ Campbell. Campbell had been linked with a move to Crystal Palace last week but it seems Hull are the first Championship side to launch a formal approach for the prolific front man.

Jack Hunt says he is flattered to be linked with a move to the Premier League but remains fully committed to Huddersfield Town. The 22-year-old defender has been the stand out performer for Huddersfield this season, leading to suggestions that he could be the subject of several Premier League bids.

Bradford City manager Phil Parkinson has said he’s happy at the club despite an approach from Blackpool. The Tangerines have been without a manager since Michael Appleton up and left the side for Blackburn Rovers. Parkinson’s exploits with Bradford in the League Cup this season have got him much attention.

Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has admitted he doesn’t know if Argentine striker Luciano Becchio will be at the club at the end of January. Becchio has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League side Wigan Athletic but Warnock insists he’ll do his best to get the player to stay.

Derby County are standing firm over the future of 17-year-old star Will Hughes. Fresh reports have suggested that Manchester City have made a £10 million bid to sign him from the Championship side but Derby are thought to be ready to refuse any bid from any Premier League team.

Michael Appleton says he is targeting two or three new signings by the end of the month. Appleton recently left Blackpool to take over at Blackburn Rovers and says new faces will give everyone a lift as the club tries to get back into the Premier League at the first time of trying.

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett says the club won’t discuss Darius Henderson’s contract until at least March. The striker is out of contract at the end of the season, leading to speculation that a number of Championship clubs are looking to sign him by the end of January.
