Canaries Join Cats in Race to Sign Graham


Byline: JAMES HUNTER

SUNDERLAND face competition from Norwich City in the race to race to sign PS5m-rated Swansea striker Danny Graham.

Martin O'Neill's interest in ex-Middlesbrough man Graham is well known and the Black Cats were first to approach the Welsh side with a formal offer before Norwich - managed by Chris Hughton - entered the chase last night with an offer.

Campbell's Wearside teammate Matt Kilgallon has posted a message on social networking site Instagram wishing him all the best at Cardiff.

Campbell has battled back from two serious knee ligament injuries but is out of contract at the end of the season and was unlikely to get a new deal.

If, as expected, Campbell does leave it will leave O'Neill with the still-inexperienced teenager Connor Wickham as his only backup for his first-choice frontman Steve Fletcher, which makes it imperative he brings in reinforcements.

O'Neill has already strengthened two problem positions this month, landing PS3. …
