Palace swoop for Cardiff's Campbell

London - Crystal Palace signed England international Fraizer Campbell from Cardiff City for an undisclosed fee on Friday.
Campbell agreed a three-year contract with the south London club as the striker made an immediate return to the Premier League following Cardiff's relegation from the top-flight last season.
The 26-year-old is believed to have cost Palace 800,000 ($1.35 million) after they triggered a release clause in the former Manchester United trainee's contract.
"CPFC are delighted to confirm the signing of striker Fraizer Campbell from Cardiff City on a three year contract for an undisclosed fee," Palace announced on their official Twitter feed.
Campbell, who made his only England appearance as a substitute in a friendly against the Netherlands in 2012, scored just nine goals last term as the Bluebirds slumped into the Championship.
He spent 18 months at the Welsh club following his 650,000 switch from Sunderland in 2013.
Campbell also had loan spells at Royal Antwerp, Hull and Tottenham during his five-year spell with United, for whom he made just two first-team appearances.
