~~ Congrats to our guy Kei Kamara on his move to English side Middlesbrough… Big time my man. Big. Time.
And shouts to Shaun Higgins over at PROficient Agency on another player to England.
Sporting Kansas City announced on Monday that the club has agreed to transfer forward Kei Kamara to Middlesbrough FC (Football League Championship) in England. Sporting Kansas City will receive two-thirds of the substantial transfer fee to use as allocation money^ per MLS rules.
“Over the last four-plus years Kei’s progression as a player has been tremendous,” said Sporting KC Manager Peter Vermes. “We appreciate his service to the team and to the club and we wish nothing but the best for him and his next challenge as a player.”
In eight MLS seasons with four different teams, Kamara recorded 53 goals and 24 assists in 200 appearances (including playoffs). He was an inactive MLS All-Star in 2012 and in January, Sporting KC facilitated a loan for Kamara to Norwich City FC of the Barclays Premier League. He scored one goal in 11 games for the Canaries.
