DJ Campbell cannot believe how quickly his life has turned around.New Birmingham signing DJ Campbell has revealed his astonishment at how quickly his life has turned around.
The 24-year-old was playing for non-league Yeading until last summer, at the same time as holding down a full-time job.
After being snapped up by League One side Brentford, the striker produced a series of eye-catching displays, most notably against Sunderland in the FA Cup last Saturday, to earn himself a shock move to The Premiership.
A possible Blues debut against Arsenal looms this weekend, leaving Campbell in dreamland.
"It's great to be here but I can't believe it's happened," he told Sky Sports News.
"That's life I suppose. One minute I'm working and the next I'm in The Premiership.
"I thought my chance had gone but (Brentford manager) Martin Allen took a chance on me and it paid off and now Birmingham are taking a chance on me and hopefully this will pay off.
"I know it's all coming thick and fast for me but I've just got to take things as they come. If I do get the chance to sit on the bench (against Arsenal) and maybe get five or ten minutes I will take it with both hands. It is crazy to be playing against them."
