FOREST GREEN boss Mark Cooper has landed his seventh signing in the transfer window, capturing West Bromwich Albion striker Tahvon Campbell on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old spent the first part of this campaign at  National League Solihull Moors.

A product of the West Brom academy system, he has yet to feature for the first team but hopes his experience from another loan spell at Yeovil Town will help during his time at The New Lawn.

“I’m excited with the challenge ahead,” said Campbell, who has been training with the team this week.

“There is a test there, which is to stay in the league and I want to be part of the team that does that.

“I’ve got experience because I spent time with Yeovil when they were at the bottom of the league and we managed to stay up and it’s something I think I can contribute towards.

“The gaffer has told me lots of good things, how the club like to play football, which is one of the main reasons why I wanted to come here because they play football the right way.

“I’ve met the lads because I’ve been here to train and all the lads seem really nice and the team has got good chemistry and should be fine.”

Prior to joining Solihull, Campbell was at Notts County where he made 11 appearances during a six-month loan deal.

He had two temporary stints at Yeovil Town, where he scored twice in 14 starts, and before that he was loaned out to Kidderminster, making 15 appearances before being recalled by West Brom.

Campbell, who describes himself as a strong and quick forward, is available for tomorrow’s home game with Cambridge United, subject to EFL clearance and can’t wait to get started.

“I either play in the three behind the striker or as a striker as well,” he added.

“I think the way the gaffer wants me to play is be direct, get in behind and use my pace.

“I think I can add a different aspect to what the club already have.”
