Swedish clubs eye Sierra Leone defender 

DECEMBER 1, 2014 By Sahr Morris Jr

Several reports from Swaziland are suggesting that Swedish Premier League clubs are eyeing a move for Sierra Leone and Mbabane Highlanders defender, Baimba Kamara.

According to the Swazi Observer, Kamara is set to attend trials with unnamed Swedish teams at the end of the Swaziland league season and that the player might leave the Highlanders soon if his European suitors are pleased with his performance.

A move could see the capital city giants negotiate for the player’s transfer fee as he has a running contract with them.

The newspaper also reported that the player’s agent, Dumezweni Dlamini, has neither confirmed nor denied the news.

“We do have some Swedish Premier League teams who have shown interest in the player’s services but we obviously need to engage Highlanders as he has a running contract with them,” Dlamini was quoted by the Swazi Observer as saying. “We are waiting for the Swedish guys to call us anytime from now to give us the feedback and we anticipate that he will leave the country at the end of the season.”

However, the Highlanders spokesperson, Celucolo ‘Dino’ Dlamini, told the Swaziland-based newspaper that such news had not reached his office when contacted last night.

“He has a running contract with us but if international teams are interested in his services then they have to follow protocol by inviting us to the negotiation table,” Dlamini said.

The former Mighty Blackpool and Gem Stars defender is said to have established himself in the heart of Highlanders’ defence after joining them at the beginning of the season from Mhlambanyatsi Rovers.
