The 26-year-old was on a list of players to leave Darlington earlier this week – but he wasted little time in finding a new club after signing a one-year deal with their National League North rivals.

The move sees Campbell return to the International Stadium after he scored three goals in eight games during a loan spell with Gateshead during the 2014/15 National League season.

After putting pen-to-paper to finalise the move, Campbell told the club website: “It’s a good feeling, it’s something me and the manager have spoken about for quite a while now.

“It’s nice to finally have it sorted and obviously coming to a club like Gateshead and being back training full-time is massive.

“It’s just the right fit for me, playing central and being part of a smaller squad that is looking to go far and do big things in the league.”
