Birmingham City, QPR and Rotherham chase Luton Town's Allan Campbell

Birmingham City, Queens Park Rangers, and Rotherham United are all targeting the same player as the end of the January transfer window draws ever closer.

The three aforementioned clubs are probably quite nervous about what's to come in the second half of the season. QPR and Rotherham are in the relegation places - 22nd and 24th respectively, to be more specific - and Birmingham's wheels have almost entirely fallen offer, after a bizarre decision to sack John Eustace, who had them in the top six at the time; they are now 20th and have had three managers in their first 28 games of the season.

The Blues, R's, and Millers will all have to strengthen their squad before tonight's 11pm deadline in order to avoid the drop down to the third tier of English football, and they're all going after the same player in order to try and do so.

Birmingham, QPR, and Rotherham are reportedly all in a race to sign Luton Town midfielder Allan Campbell before the close of the January transfer window.

This news is coming from Football Insider, who added that Aberdeen are also trying to bring in the Scotsman. Campbell is currently on loan from the Hatters to a different Championship side, Millwall. He hasn't played for the residents of The Den since mid-December.

The 25-year-old Scottish international played in 42 games for Rob Edwards' side last season; 38 of them were starts. In those games, he provided a combined five goals and assists. He did not feature in Luton's play-off matches against Sunderland or Coventry City.

Allan Campbell should stay at Millwall, if he can

The 2022/23 campaign should have been enough to prove to everyone that the Scottish midfielder is more than capable of playing in the Championship; you don't play that many games for a promotion winning side if the previous statement isn't true.

If he were to join any of these teams, the best fit for him would be QPR. Marti Cifuentes and his style of play would mesh well with Campbell's on the ball and passing abilities. He isn't a midfielder that's going to rack up impressive stats, but that's not a necessary trait in Cifuentes' system.

But, the risk with QPR is the huge relegation potential that's been staring them in the face for a couple of years now. Campbell won't want to be in League One with them when he is way above that level. If he can see the season out, stay with Millwall, and then make a move to a Championship club, that would be the best scenario for him.
