Kevin Campbell has backed Ross Barkley to rediscover his best form if he moves to West Ham.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Arsenal and Everton striker suggested David Moyes knows how to get the best out of the 27-year-old from their time together at Goodison Park.

Barkley spent the 2020-21 campaign on loan at Villa Park and contributed three goals and one assist in 24 appearances in what was ultimately a disappointing spell in the Midlands.
