Crystal Palace beat Leicester to Campbell capture

first_img New Crystal Palace signing, striker Fraizer Campbell 1 Crystal Palace have announced the signing of Cardiff striker Fraizer Campbell.Cardiff accepted two bids from the Premier League for the 26-year-old, with Palace and newly promoted side Leicester City both triggering his release clause – thought to be around £900,000.And the frontman decided to pen a three-year deal with the London-based Eagles, bringing his 18-month stay in Wales to a close.Campbell came through the youth ranks at Manchester United at the start of his career, but made his professional debut with Belgian side Royal Antwerp while on loan from Old Trafford during the 2006/07 season.That stint was a success, as was a spell with Hull the following term, and he subsequently spent time on loan with Tottenham before departing United – for whom he had made a total of just four appearances – to join Sunderland in 2009.In January 2013 he switched to Cardiff and helped them win the Championship title that season – one in which Palace were also promoted, via the play-offs.But he could not prevent the Welsh outfit from making a swift return to the second tier, with them finishing bottom of the Barclays Premier League in 2013/14.He arrives at Palace, who came 11th last term, having netted 16 goals in 52 appearances in all competitions for the Bluebirds.last_img read more

Listen: Declan Bonner says Donegal U21s need ‘big shift’ in this evening’s Ulster semi-final

first_imgDeclan Bonner says his Donegal Under-21 side will need to deliver ‘another big shift’ in this evening’s Ulster Under-21 semi-final against Cavan at Brewster Park (throw-in 8pm).After seeing off Tyrone in a replay in Ballybofey last Wednesday, Donegal are up against another old foe at this grade.The Breffni safely jumped the hurdle of Fermanagh 2-19 to 0-4 in their opening fixture, on the same night Donegal were playing out a 0-14 apiece extra-time thriller with Tyrone. Michael Langan, who posted six points in the drawn game, scored seven in last week’s 0-18 to 1-9 win.“It will take another big shift and a disciplined performance,” Bonner said.“We got out of jail in the first game. Last week was really tough, but we finished strong.“Once that was over, it was full focus on Cavan. They’ll be a well-organised, well-drilled team. They’ll be a tough nut to crack.” Kieran Gillespie and Cian Mulligan are nearing full fitness again, but Bonner says that midfielder Jason McGee stands a ‘less than 50-50’ chance of being fit.Listen to the full interview below …Listen: Declan Bonner says Donegal U21s need ‘big shift’ in this evening’s Ulster semi-final was last modified: March 29th, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CavanDeclan BonnerdonegalDonegal Under 21slast_img read more
