Blackpool have re-signed striker DJ Campbell from Leicester City on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee.

Campbell was on loan at Blackpool last season, helping them reach the Premier League with a hat-trick in the play-off semi-final win over Nottingham Forest.

He returned to Leicester for the start of the season but completed a move to Blackpool on transfer deadline day.

"Everyone knows how much I love the club," said the 28-year-old. "It feels like I've got unfinished business."

"I wanted to come back and I'm just delighted that it's been made possible."


Campbell scored 11 goals in 18 games for Blackpool last season, as the Tangerines won promotion to the top-flight since the 1970-71 campaign.

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway had voiced his wish to bring the striker back to the club.
