Manchester Transfer List

According to a report in the British tabloid The Daily Mirror, Premier League champions Manchester United have transfer-listed Frazier Campbell, Darron Gibson and Danny Simpson.

Apparently, manager Alex Ferguson has notified the trio that they are free to search for new employers this summer.

It is thought that United are hoping to raise around £10 million from the sales.

England under-21 international Campbell spent the 2008/09 season on loan at Tottenham Hotspur, but having scored just three goals in 22 appearances, it is unlikely he will be returning to White Hart Lane.

Rather, it appears that Hull City, for whom the 21-year-old striker scored 15 goals during a season-long loan in 2007/08, are favourites to land him with a bid in the region of £5m.

Five-time capped Republic of Ireland international midfielder Gibson, meanwhile, is being linked with Premier League newcomers Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Twenty-two-year-old Simpson does not appear to have convinced Blackburn Rovers to sign him following a loan spell at Ewood Park last season, but Birmingham City and Newcastle United are thought to be keeping tabs on the £1m-rated right-back.
