DJ trains sights on England

The 29-year-old rejoined rejoined the club with whom he spent his

formative years on Thursday, penning a two-year deal at Loftus Road

to end his successful spell with Blackpool. Campbell snubbed

interest interest from other clubs in the Premier League to become

manager Neil Warnock’s fourth summer signing and admitted this

morning it is great to return to west London. “I can’t wait,” he

told talkSPORT. “Obviously I left a great club in Blackpool but I

have signed for another great club in QPR. “It is a club that I

supported as a boy and I am looking forward to it. “Every game in

this league is going to be hard as a I knew last season but the

gaffer has a good quad here and hopefully we can all stick together

and push in the same direction. “Everyone in this league can be

beaten but obviously you can beaten by every team in this league so

it is going to be tough but it is a challenge we’re looking forward

to. “There were a few clubs in for me but QPR are my home club and

the club I supported as a boy. “It is the area I know very as that

is where my family is from and stuff. “When I found out they were

interested it was great to come home.” He added: “I wanted to play

in the Premiership and it’s funny how a club like QPR comes up

because it’s the team I went to watch as a kid and my mum always

said that one day you’ll end up back there. “Funnily enough it’s

happened and I’m delighted.” QPR had a bid for Campbell accepted

almost a week ago, reportedly triggering a release clause in his

Blackpool contract, which had a year left to run with the option of

a further 12 months. The striker moved to the Seasiders following

their promotion last summer and netted 13 goals in 31 appearances

in the top flight. Campbell admitted the goal tally saw him fall

just short of his target for the campaign and has now set himself

the ultimate goal to represent his country. “Every season I set

myself a target,” he said. “I set myself a target last year and

nearly got to it and obviously I’ve set myself a target this year.

“If I can better what I did last year, I will be over the moon.

“I’ve got ambitions with my national team, which hopefully one day

I can achieve, and that was a big part of me coming back into the

Premier League.” Campbell is in line to make his first Rs

appearance in tonight’s pre-season friendly against Luton. The

Kenilworth Road clash will be Rangers’ final pre-season friendly

ahead of the first game of the season against Bolton next Saturday.
