WATERHOUSE discard Romario 'Rom Rom' Campbell should be a confirmed Humble Lion player by tomorrow, two days before the Premier League's first transfer window closes.

Humble Lion manager Sheldon Holness yesterday told STAR Sports that he was confident the player would complete a move from Waterhouse to Clarendon.

"Everything has been settled with Waterhouse. He (Campbell) would be coming to sign all documents tomorrow (today), after coming from his summer vacation in the United States of America," Holness said.

"He will be a Humble Lion player after tomorrow," Holness confidently added.

However, with the first transfer window closing on Friday, August 25, Waterhouse's general secretary, Richard 'Spoon' McCallum, said whereas both clubs have come to an agreement for a deal, an undisclosed fee, the transfer was not yet settled.

 

Undisclosed fee

 

"We have come to an agreement for the player to leave Waterhouse to Humble Lion for an undisclosed fee, but the transaction is not yet executed so, as we speak, he is still a Waterhouse player," McCallum pointed out.

Campbell, who was suspended indefinitely by Waterhouse during the latter part of last season for disciplinary reasons, had joined the Drewsland club from Harbour View in 2013.

The 27-year-old Campbell started his senior career at Harbour View in 2009 and spent four seasons. He is hoping the transfer to Effortville in an effort would also revive his national ambitions.

On moving to Waterhouse, he became a favourite of then national senior team coach, Winfried Schafer. However, the former Norman Manley High School star subsequently struggled with fitness and form and was dropped from the national set-up after eight appearances for the Reggae Boyz.
