Rangers manager Steven Gerrard
Campbell personally made calls to both Rangers and Celtic on Thursday to inform them that he plans to stay in England and has thanked them for their interest in him, according to the report.
The Gers and the Bhoys reportedly held pre-contract talks with the Stoke striker’s representatives and could have signed him for a compensation fee of £400,000 in the summer of 2020 when his current contract with the Potters is due to run out.
However, according to the report, the 20-year-old striker has decided to stay in England, with Premier League outfit Sheffield United interested in signing the youngster and Stoke also ready to offer him a new deal.
Playing for a club in ether of the top two tiers of English football would be more beneficial for Campbell in his development and progress as a footballer than moving to the Scottish top flight.
