QPR seal deal for striker Campbell

QPR have completed the signing of striker DJ Campbell from Blackpool.

Campbell, who has agreed a two-year deal with the option of a further year, had a clause in his Blackpool contract allowing him to leave the relegated club for £1.25m.

Born in Hammersmith, Campbell was on the books at QPR and Aston Villa as a youngster but failed to make the grade.

He drifted down to non-League level but, in 2005, came to prominence while playing for a Yeading side that took on Newcastle at Loftus Road in an FA Cup tie.

Warnock was keen to add another striker to his squad

Later that year he joined Brentford, where his performances earned him a move to the Premiership with Birmingham.

He struggled to establish himself at St Andrews, and also endured an unhappy spell at Leicester.

But after helping Blackpool win a shock promotion while on loan with the Tangerines, he signed for them for £1.25m in August 2010 and seized his second chance in the top flight, scoring 13 goals last season.

His capture means Rangers have this summer signed two strikers who started out at QPR. Recent arrival Jay Bothroyd was also with the club as a youngster.
