Leicester Mercury - Leicester City striker DJ Campbell could be on way to QPR Thursday, July 23, 2009
- Unsettled Leicester City striker DJ Campbell could be thrown a lifeline by Championship rivals QPR.
- Campbell has been linked with a move to Loftus Road and the wealthy London club have the resources to overcome any stumbling blocks over the 27-year-old striker's wage demands.
- Campbell was loaned out to Blackpool last season and scored nine goals in 19 games. Seasiders boss Ian Holloway pursued a move to acquire Campbell on a permanent basis but said he "couldn't see us getting him in a million years" because of his salary.
- QPR have no such financial limitations with Formula One magnates Bernie Ecclestone and Flavio Briatiore masterminding a £14m takeover of the club in 2007.
- A QPR source said: "DJ Campbell would be a popular move and I'd expect him to earn a five-figure weekly salary.
- "The manager (Jim Magilton) has enquired about a lot of players and DJ would fit the bill. They like DJ down here, particularly as he is a QPR fan.
- "He had a couple of trials when he was a kid but nothing came of it, and I'm sure the supporters would welcome him back."

- Magilton's interest in Campbell may also step up a notch now that QPR striker Dexter Blackstock has agreed a switch to Nottingham Forest.
- Campbell, who has two years of his contract at City to run, has been frozen out of City manager Nigel Pearson's first-team squad plans since returning to the Walkers Stadium
- During his spell at Bloomfield Road, he said that returning to Leicester was the last thing he wanted to do.
- Campbell was not included in the 23-man squad which travelled to Slovenia but made a 45-minute appearance at Kings Lynn last weekend.
- Assistant boss Craig Shakespeare said Campbell remained a contracted Leicester player and said: "We will use him if it's the right thing to do."... Leicester Mercury
