Fraizer Campbell

2008 - 2009

The striker joined us on a season-long loan from Manchester United on transfer deadline day summer 2008 as part of the Dimitar Berbatov transfer.

Campbell made his Spurs debut as a substitute in our UEFA Cup first round first leg win over Wisla Krakow in September 2008, laying on the winning goal that night for Darren Bent.

His first goal in our colours was quickly followed by his second in our 4-2 Carling Cup fourth round win over Liverpool in November. He scored for the first time in the Premier League that weekend in a defeat at Fulham.

Fraizer was top scorer for Manchester United's Under-18 side as a first year scholar in 2004/05, scoring 14 goals in 22 starts as the Reds finished second in the Premier Academy League Group C. His performances at youth level led to him being called up to the Reserves, where he played five games and scored once.

Fraizer embarked on a loan move to Royal Antwerp at the start of the 2006/07 season, and quickly became a favourite with the fans, who nicknamed him "Super Campbell". His goalscoring exploits in Belgium underlined his rapid development and helped him earn his competitive United debut as a substitute in the Manchester derby at Eastlands in August 2007.

Another successful loan spell followed, this time at Hull City where his talents earned him a first call-up for England Under 21s in March 2008. He scored 15 goals in 32 starts during his time with the Tigers and helped them secure promotion to the Premier League following a play-off victory over Bristol City in May.

On his return to Old Trafford ahead of the start of the 2008/09 season, Fraizer hit two goals in six games during United's pre-season campaign and was handed his first ever Premier League start in the 1-1 draw with Newcastle United on the opening day of the campaign.
