Newcastle, Sunderland target Campbell admits he wants out of Blackpool

Blackpool striker DJ Campbell admits he wants a Premier League return.

Campbell is interesting Sunderland and Newcastle United.

He was the second-highest scoring English striker behind Darren Bent, netting against the likes of Man United, Liverpool, and Spurs.

Campbell told The Sun: "I'm 29 now and feel at the peak of my career.

"Blackpool's been great, I love the fans, the staff and everything about the place. But I think people realise that if I want to take my career on and play for England I have to be in the Premier League.

"I had a conversation with the manager Ian Holloway and told him how I felt. He understands. He knows at my age with what I achieved during the season, he can't really stand in my way. It's not about money, I'm a human being with ambitions.

"If those could have been with Blackpool that would have been my dream but we went down."
