Kamara is off to the Middle East

The rumored departure of Alhaji Kamara from D.C. United has reached its conclusion. Al-Taawoun FC, of the Saudi Professional League, announced on Twitter this morning that they had signed Alhaji Kamara. The amount of the transfer fee, if any, is currently unknown at this time and is typically not released by MLS or its teams.

This ends the saga of Kamara, who had been signed by United after having not played for months due to a heart condition; United and MLS’s doctors eventually cleared Kamara for full participation. After scoring a goal in his first match with the team, he had primarily be sent to the Richmond Kickers to get him playing time. According to Steve Goff, Kamara has been looking to secure more playing time and wanted to leave United.

This move opens up another roster spot and international spot for D.C. United, which they will look to use once the transfer window open in a couple of weeks; it is likely to be a busy window for a team trying to correct course midseason. Update: When reached for comment, D.C. United confirmed that Kamara had been transferred to Al-Taawoun.

Good luck in your future endeavors, Alhaji!
