Zoumana Camara not interested in move to the Premier League.
Fulham, West Brom and West Ham have all been told to forget about signing defender Zoumana Camara from Paris Saint-Germain after the centre-back vowed to stay and fight for his place at the Ligue 1 side.
The three Premier League clubs had been preparing summer moves for 33-year-old Camara, who has lost his place in the first-team at PSG where he had previously been a regular since joining the club in 2007.
But French international Camara has expressed his desire to stay at the Parc des Princes to fight for his place in manager Carlo Ancelotti’s first-team rather than move to the Premier League for his final days as a professional footballer.
“It is always disappointing when you do not play, especially in a big game against Marseille,” Camara told Sky Sports after PSG’s win over Marseille. But you have to respect the choice of the manager and work hard in training and hopefully your chance will come. I want to be a part of this new chapter. Let us wait and see.”
Camara, capped once by France, had a brief spell in the Premier League in 2004 when playing 13 times and scoring one in a Leeds United side who were relegated from the top flight in the 2003/04 season.
He has spent the majority of his career playing in France with two spells at St Etienne and stints with Marseille and Lens, while he did spend time in Italy with Inter Milan, Empoli and Bastia during a 16-year career to date.
