Sierra Leone international midfielder, Mohamed ‘Medo’ Kamara is reportedly heading out of England with a possible move to Israeli Premier League side Maccabi Haifa FC.
The Haifa-based club confirmed on their website that the Bolton Wanderers star is expected to join the club on trial with an option of securing a permanent deal.
It was rumoured lately in England that Bolton has been looking to offload the former Partizan Belgrade midfielder who has been out of favour since the arrival of manager Neil Lennon.
The 27-year-old joined Bolton Wanderers in January 2013 on a three-and-a-half-year contract for a fee of around £300,000. He made his debut for the Championship side the following month, coming on as a substitute in a 4-1 win over Hull City.
Kamara had been a regular player for Wanderers under manager Dougie Freedman but since the gaffer’s departure from the club, the player has been a forgotten man, and has only made the odd appearance for the reserve team since Lennon took over.
Meanwhile, freelance sports journalist Raphael Gellar has confirmed the news of Kamara’s possible move to the Israeli club after he posted on his tweeter page: “Maccabi Haifa FC confirms that Sierra Leone international Mohamed Kamara will arrive at the club on trial.”
Maccabi Haifa FC is one of four clubs in the “Big Four” in Israeli football and has won the league title 12 times with five State Cups and four Toto Cups. Maccabi has won the championship and the Toto Cup in the same season (referred to as winning the “double”) one time and was the first Israeli club to qualify for the group stage of the UEFA Champions League.
