Örebro turns down Malaga move for Kamara

January 21, 2015 By Sahr Morris Jr.

Swedish Allsvenskan club Örebro is said to have turned down an attempted move by Spanish club Malaga for Sierra Leone striker, Alhassan ‘Crespo’ Kamara.

The player’s Swedish and Sierra Leonean agents, Patrick Mork and Chernor Musa Jalloh respectively, both confirmed negotiations between Örebro and a club that is interested in buying the striker.

“It is true that there is concrete interest from a club, and it is now being negotiated between the club and OSK,” Mork said.

The Freetown-based agent of the player, Chernor Musa Jalloh, like Mork, refused to identify the club but confirmed that negotiation did take place. He declined to comment further on the issue.

“There are more clubs interested in signing Kamara and a big name club did engage Örebro for the player but I cannot say how it ended or if talks are still ongoing,” Jalloh said.

However, an official at Örebro, Magnus Shield Mark, was quoted by Swedish media Nerikes Allehanda as denying both agents’ claims.

“We do not negotiate with Malaga on Alhassan. It is true that there is interest from several clubs for the player, which is quite normal when he has qualities that you will not find in any other striker in the Nordic countries right now. But no negotiation is going on,” said Mark.

Spanish La Liga club Malaga has previously shown interest in signing Kamara but are yet to make any concrete bid. The striker was recently linked with a move to Hull City in the English Premier League.

Kamara joined Örebro from AIK, where he failed to hit the mark but has so far succeeded at Örebro. Last season, despite joining the squad in the second half of the campaign due to injury, the striker scored 14 goals in 19 games including a notable hat-trick on the final day of the season.
