Norwich Delay Decision On Striker Deal

Posted by

You’re a long way from Kansas, Kei.

Norwich City are said to be keeping MLS side Sporting Kansas City waiting over the future of striker, Kei Kamara, Sky Sports understands.

The 28-year-old joined the Canaries on loan in January and has become a cult figure at Carrow Road, but his loan agreement expires on May 6th and he won’t be able to feature in the club’s final two games unless a permanent deal can be agreed.

However, Sporting KC have yet to hear whether a decision has been made on the Sierra Leone international, believing that Chris Hughton’s men may be hoping to secure Premier League football for another year.

Sporting’s technical director, Peter Vermes said; “We are looking into it, but I haven’t heard anything yet. We have already negotiated everything. Other than Kei saying he doesn’t want to do it, it would pretty much go through.”

“They are not really sure where they sit right now and where they are going to go. If they would be a little more secure in their position in the league, I think it would be easier for them to make a deal one way or the other.

“Right now, I think that is why we’re not hearing anything.”

Norwich have already signed Dutch striker Ricky Van Wolfswinkel from Sporting Lisbon, who will join up with the squad next season. Kamara has scored just one goal in eight appearances during his short time in England, that goal coming in a 2-1 win over Everton in February.
