Kamara signs for Wanderers

Sierra Leone international signs for Wanderers on a three-and-a-half year deal

Wanderers have added midfielder Mohamed Kamara to their ranks after agreeing a deal with 26-time Serbian champions Partizan Belgrade, subject to international clearance.

The Sierra Leone international, commonly known as Medo, joins for an undisclosed fee and has signed a three-and-a-half year contract.

Medo, aged 25, had enjoyed a successful spell with Partizan, winning back-to-back league titles and a Serbian Cup whilst playing five games in the group stages of the 2011/12 Champions League.

Prior to his stint in Belgrade, Medo represented Finnish sides Helsingin Jalkapalloklubi (HJK) and Kuopion Palloseura (KuPS), winning one league title and two domestic cups over a four-year period. He also holds a Finnish citizenship.

Dougie Freedman said: “I’ve known about Medo for a while now. Aki Riihilahti, who is a good friend of mine from when we were Crystal Palace, played with him in Finland.

“I’ve seen a lot of him and never really thought I’d have any chance of working with him. From Finland he went over to Partizan Belgrade and has certainly become a better player over the last three or four years.

“It’s the right deal for the club. He has the heart of a lion, the hunger, the desire and the right mind-set – he wants to come here and do well and I look forward to working with him.”
