Sierra Leone striker Kei Kamara will not return to Vancouver Whitecaps.

Forward Kei Kamara, who is presently on holiday in his country Sierra Leone, will not be returning to Canadian side Vancouver Whitecaps.

“I am available to be pick today by Cincinnati and Friday by trade window, Kei told Football Sierra Leone.

The club’s leading scorer has opted out of free agency, choosing instead to be eligible for Tuesday’s expansion draft and the league’s re-entry draft on Friday.

The Whitecaps also confirmed that striker Kei Kamara would not be returning for the 2019 season.

“Kei was an important part of the team last year, and we’re thankful for his time at the club,” said head coach Marc Dos Santos.

“We evaluated what we want in this position for next season, while also keeping in mind the medium and long-term. We are looking for characteristics that are very specific as a whole. We wish Kei all the best.”

Kamara, who earned a team-high $1million last season, was also the club’s top scorer with 14 goals and five assists in 28 games.
