Campbell scored twice on Saturday as the Bees dumped Sunderland out of the competition at the fourth round stage.

His display caught the eye of Blues boss Steve Bruce, who swooped for the player ahead of the transfer deadline on Tuesday.

The Premiership side will pay £500,000 for the player, who Brentford signed from Yeading for £4,000 in the summer, with the total fee possibly rising to £1m depending on appearances.

Blues boss Steve Bruce said: "He is someone who is quick, direct and young.

"He is a bit raw, but he has a good eye for goal and is an exciting player.

"He is quite refreshing and from his interviews you can see that he is someone who enjoys playing football.
