Fraizer Campbell is planning to 'stick around' at Manchester United after making his first start for the club.

The promising striker was given a chance in the United side in Sunday's season-opening draw with Newcastle United.

He had looked sharp for the champions in pre-season and also impressed during a loan spell at Hull City last term.

With United boss Sir Alex Ferguson looking to improve his attacking options, Campbell has been linked with a return to Hull once a new signing arrives at Old Trafford.

However, after enjoying his appearance in the 1-1 draw with Newcastle, Campbell has no plans to leave on loan again in the near future.


"It's difficult to put into words what it felt like," the England Under 21 international told MUTV. "It's great.

"It's what I've been working for ever since I joined this club, so it was great to get out there.

"I hope to get more chances in the team, I'll be sticking around for a bit."


Meanwhile, the Red Devils have signed a five-year sponsorship deal with Middle East telecommunications giant Saudi Telecom.

The multi-million pound agreement gives Saudi Telecom exclusive rights to mobile phone content within Saudi Arabia, including video highlights of goals and match footage.

United chief executive David Gill: "Our match earlier this year in Riyadh demonstrated the passion our Saudi fans have for Manchester United.

"We believe this groundbreaking partnership will bring the action of Manchester United direct to our many fans in Saudi Arabia."
