Report: Hull City interested in signing Crystal Palace striker Frazier Campbell

Hull City KC South Stand

Hull City are reportedly set to rival Wolverhampton Wanderers in the race for Crystal Palace's Frazier Campbell.

Hull City are lining up a loan bid for Crystal Palace striker Frazier Campbell, according to a report in the Hull Daily Mail

Campbell has slipped down the pecking order at Selhurst Park, with the additions of Connor Wickham and Patrick Bamford knocking him out of the first-team equation. 

Hull feel that Palace could allow the 28-year-old to leave on a temporary basis, and they reportedly intend to make a formal approach in the near future. 

They will have competition, though, as Wolverhampton Wanderers have also been linked with the front-man, by the Express and Star.

Campbell played for the Tigers in the 2007/08 season, scoring 15 times in 34 matches, so they know all about his talents. 

Steve Bruce feels that he would improve his side's attacking threat, as Hull gun for promotion out of the Championship this term. 

At the moment, Hull have the likes of Chuba Akpom, Abel Hernandez and Sone Aluko competing for their striking berths, and Bruce would understandably like to increase the options available to him. 

Campbell has made 20 appearances for Palace since joining them in 2014, scoring four times, but he is yet to make it onto the pitch this season.
