Championship chase on for DJ

A host of clubs are battling it out to sign free agent DJ Campbell following his departure from Blackburn, Sky Sports understands.

Campbell is available on a free transfer after cancelling his contract at Blackburn by mutual consent earlier this week.

The news has alerted a number of Championship clubs to landing the proven forward on a free transfer.

Campbell scored 13 goals in Blackpool's one season in the Premier League and in total scored 34 goals in 60 appearances for the Seasiders.

Several Championship sides are now weighing up moves for the former Leicester and Queens Park Rangers man as they see Campbell as someone who can add goals to their sides for next season.
