Spurs bring in Campbell on loan

Tottenham have signed Manchester United striker Fraizer Campbell on a season-long loan as part of the deal to sell Dimitar Berbatov to the Red Devils.

Berbatov has joined United for 30.75m and 20-year-old Campbell's move in the opposite direction has prevented Hull from signing him on a permanent basis.

Hull had tabled a 7m bid for a player who they had on loan last season.

Campbell spent seven months with them and scored 15 league goals as they gained promotion to the Premier League.

But Berbatov's move to Old Trafford left Spurs light in the striker department and they have taken Campbell to give them more back up.

Campbell was in Manchester United's squad against Zenit St Petersburg in the Super Cup final on Friday and is a highly rated talent.
