This summer is going to be an amazing one for Huddersfield Town fans, as they look forward to their side competing in the Premier League for the first time in their history.

And the rumours have already started about who they might sign ahead of their top flight appearance.

David Wagner will know that his squad needs strengthening. The Terriers finished fifth in the Sky Bet Championship, and although their players had enough in them to earn promotion, the current squad would struggle in the Premier League.

One player they have already been linked with is a striker who has Premier League experience. His name is Fraizer Campbell.

The Sun reports that David Wagner is looking to bring Campbell in. The striker’s contract at Crystal Palace runs out in the summer, and no attempt has been made by the London club to negotiate a new one.

Even if they did try, Campbell is expected to want to leave as he pursues regular first team football.

Fraizer Campbell only appeared 13 times for Palace in the Premier League last season scoring just the one goal.

The 29 year old striker was actually born in Huddersfield, and is said to be seriously interested in a move to his hometown club.

Campbell moved to Manchester United when he was younger to play for the academy, but failed to make the cut at Old Trafford.

As well, as Crystal Palace, Campbell has also enjoyed spells in the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur, Hull City, Sunderland and Cardiff City.

The striker has also earned one cap for England, appearing in a friendly match with the Netherlands in 2012.
