Campbell has Palace medical

Cardiff City striker Fraizer Campbell is to have a medical at Crystal Palace later on Wednesday, according to Sky sources.

Campbell had held transfer talks with Leicester City but the move fell through and the 26-year-old now appears to be on the verge of joining Tony Pulis in south London.

Reports claimed the former Manchester United striker had a 600,000 release clause in his contract which Palace and Leicester have both triggered.

Campbell could not prevent Cardiff from suffering relegation in 2013/14, despite scoring nine goals, but he is now set for a swift return to the Premier League.

Campbell's Cardiff team-mate Steven Caulker has already left the club after joining Queens Park Rangers for 8.5million and City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already resigned himself to losing his star players following relegation.
