Blackburn Rovers star DJ Campbell latest star embroiled in betting saga

It has been revealed today, that one of six people arrested on Sunday following bet fixing reports in the Sunday Sun following is Blackburn Rovers star, DJ Campbell.

The arrests came after ex Portsmouth player Sam Sodje told an undercover Sun on Sunday reporter he could arrange yellow and red cards in exchange for cash.

The National Crime Agency said five people were bailed later on Sunday.

Officers were continuing to question a sixth individual, who was arrested on Sunday evening, the NCA added.

Portsmouth Football Club said it was "shocked and saddened" by the claims.

Campbell, 32 - whose full name is Dudley Junior Campbell - played in the Premiership for Birmingham, Blackpool and QPR.

Blackburn Rovers FC said in a statement: "Following reports in today's national media, Blackburn Rovers can confirm that striker DJ Campbell has been arrested.

"The club will be making no further comment on what is now an on-going legal matter."

According to the BBC, discussions are on-going between Blackburn Rovers, their lawyers and representatives of Mr Campbell over his future at the club.

Blackburn play Millwall on Saturday but it looks almost certain that Campbell will not feature as the club talk to his agents.
