Alhaji Kamara leaves Saudi club Al-Taawoun FC

Alhaji Kamara has left Saudi Arabian side Al-Taawoun by mutual consent, just seven months into his three-year contract, Football Sierra Leone understands.

Kamara, 23, scored 5 goals in 14 appearances since joining the club in June 2017.

The 5 ft 11-inch striker also made eight appearances – starting twice for DC United before his move to Saudi.

In Sweden, he was clinical when playing for Norrköping in the Swedish Allsvenskan scoring 21 goals in 48 games in all competitions.

In 2015, he was loaned to Malaysian side Johor Darul Ta’zim F.C. but was recalled to IFK Norrköping in July 2016, where he scored seven goals in thirteen appearances to help the Swedish side win the league.

Capped four times for Sierra Leone, he began his career with local club FC Kallon, before signing on loan with Swedish first division side Djurgårdens IF in 2012 and eventually signing with IFK Norrköping in 2014.

In February 2016, it was reported that the Sierra Leonean has a potential cardio issue and because of that, he was stopped from playing in Europe.

But the Swedish Allsvenskan winner was cleared to resume his career after further examinations from US-based doctors; the initial medical test confirmed he was suffering from a congenital heart disease, a deviation of the coronary arteries.
