Norwich line up MLS forward

Some Norwich City fans have stopped by at the Football Transfer Tavern with news that the Canaries are interested in signing Sierra Leone international striker Kei Kamara

The 28-year-old who plays in the MLS for Sporting Kansas City recorded  his best ever goal tally of 11 from 33 games last term

“He’s someone I’ve been aware of for a while. But it’s just an enquiry,” manager Chris Hughton told BBC Sport.

“But he would only be one of a few players,” he added.

“Of course, any players you make an enquiry about would be players you feel you can add to your squad.”

Kamara started his professional career with Columbus Crew after coming through the college system. After spells at San Jose Earthquakes and Houston Dynamo, he signed for Kansas in 2009.

After seeing two bids rejected for Celtic hitman Gary Hooper, thought to be around the £7 million mark, Chris Hughton had admitted that he isn’t worried about recruiting from outside of England.

He added: “I don’t think it’s about the league they play in,” he said. “It’s about making an assessment and we would always have to have good reasons for liking a particular player.”

The Carrow Road-based club have steadily improved the squad since arriving in the Premier League in 2010/11 and many members of the current team indeed began their careers down the ladder such as Anthony Pilkington, Russell Martin, Wes Hoolahan and Grant Holt representing increased opportunities for more unlikely transfer targets. Kamara could be another one of them.

Will Kamara be trading the MLS for Carrow Road this January? Rate this rumour below.
