Ian Wright leads tributes to Kevin Campbell following the former Everton and Arsenal striker's death aged 54

Tributes have poured in for former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell following his death aged 54.

After coming through the youth ranks in North London, Campbell went on to make more than 200 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners before joining Nottingham Forest in 1995.

Campbell netted 22 times as Forest won promotion back to the top flight in his final season at the City Ground before moving on to Everton via a brief spell in Turkey with Trabzonspor.

Almost single-handedly saving the club from relegation in his first season at Goodison Park, Campbell quickly became a fan favourite and remained a mainstay with the Toffees in the ensuing years.
