Player Profile

The powerful striker will be remembered most for his time with Arsenal, Everton and Nottingham Forest but City helped him on his way when he enjoyed a productive loan spell at Filbert Street for three months, netting six goals in 12 appearances in league and cup.

Campbell, born and bred in London, had already enjoyed a loan stint away from Arsenal with Leyton Orient when Leicester snapped him up. He impressed the Foxes faithful immensely and then-manager David Pleat extended his loan for the maximum spell of three months. There was no chance of a permanent deal, however, and he went on to return to Highbury and eventually make his breakthrough into the first team.

Despite his short stay, Campbell became a fans' favourite at Leicester and was greeted with a touching farewell in his final match.

Following a permanent move to Forest, Campbell went abroad to play for Turkish side Trabzonspor before returning to Everton just a year later. He also played for West Brom before finishing his career with Cardiff City.
