General manager of Waterhouse Richard McCallum said that the club has no intention of stopping midfielder Romario 'Rom Rom' Campbell from leaving for Humble Lion if he so desires.

Campbell, who joined Waterhouse from Harbour View in 2013, has handed in a transfer request.

However, with the first transfer window for the upcoming Red Stripe Premier League scheduled to close next Friday (August 25), Waterhouse and Humble Lion are still in discussions.

"We are in negotiations with Humble Lion. The player (Campbell) has shown interest in leaving the club. We have a good relationship with Humble Lion over the years. We are still in talks, so a deal is not yet finalised," McCallum told STAR Sports yesterday morning.

Campbell was suspended during the latter part of last season by the club for disciplinary reasons, but McCallum said that won't affect him if both clubs come to an agreement.

"We are not a club that stops players from leaving, if that is the player's wish," McCallum added.

Meanwhile, president of Humble Lion Mike Henry also admitted that talks are ongoing for a deal to move the player to the Clarendon-based club.

"We are still in talks with Waterhouse for Campbell," Henry said.

The 27-year-old Campbell started his senior club career at Harbour View in 2009 and spent four seasons. He transferred to Waterhouse in 2013.

Now, the midfield general is looking to move to Humble Lion. The out-of-favour Campbell made eight appearances for the national senior team since 2010.
