Kamara leaves Bolton by mutual consent

By Sahr Morris Jr. January 15, 2016

Sierra Leone midfielder, Mohamed ‘Medo’ Kamara, has left English Championship side Bolton Wanderers after the club agreed to terminate his contract by way of mutual consent.

The relegation battling Wanderers on Thursday January 14 announced they have mutually terminated the midfielder’s deal at the Macron Stadium.

Kamara himself took to Tweeter to confirm his departure from the club as he tweeted: “Wanted to say thanks to the fans, the staff, my teammates and everyone else at the club for making my time at @OfficialBWFC so special. I am going to miss this place…I wish the club the best of luck in the future and hope that they can return to the Premier League soon!”

Kamara, who has made a total of 57 appearances and scoring three goals for the Wanderers since joining them from FK Partizan on transfer deadline day in January 2013, did not play a single match for the Championship strugglers in 16 months despite being one of the club’s highest earners.

The 28-year-old was a first team regular under Dougie Freedman, playing as part of a two-man midfield anchor with former Liverpool man, Jay Spearing but since the appointment of Neil Lennon, the combative midfielder fell down the pecking order in the club with more time given to Darren Pratley and Neil Danns.

The Sierra Leone international spent the latter part of last season on loan to Israeli side Maccabi Haifa and despite his return from loan, Wanderers were still struggling to find a place for him. The situation eventually resulted to the player publicly stating his desire to leave the club.

The former Kups and HJK Helsinki midfielder signed for Bolton on a three-and-a-half-year contract for an undisclosed fee from Partizan Belgrade.
