D.C. United to loan out Sierra Leone international

March 16, 2017 By Sahr Morris Jnr

United States (U.S.) Major League Soccer side, D. C. United are planning to send Sierra Leone international striker, Alhaji Kamara, on loan to second-tier side; Richmond Kickers for full time action.

Kamara, who joined the MLS club in May, 2016, has not enjoyed more playing time with the club as he is behind Patrick Mullins and Jose Guillermo Ortiz in the team’s perking order and his situation still remains the same.

With the new MLS season already in progress, the former FC Kallon striker is said to be eligible to move on loan and could be recalled to Washington at any time.

The 22-year-old only goal for D.C. United came in May last year just 33 seconds into his MLS debut and it was a late match-winner against Sporting Kansas City. He is yet to score in any of his other seven appearances in which he has recorded two starts before he was sidelined for three months with a hamstring injury.

D.C. United signed Kamara in May after MLS cardiology consultant and a heart specialist at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital cleared him of heart condition.

He was not allowed to play in Sweden for IFK Norrkoping, where he had scored 16 goals over two seasons. The Swedish club diagnosed him for heart problem and said he was at “a high risk of sudden cardiac death during maximum exertion. All the experts advised him against continuing football.”
