Less than one year after joining the club, Kei Kamara is on his way out at Middlesbrough.
The English club announced Thursday that they had parted ways with the former MLS forward by mutual consent, ending a stint that began in September 2013. The 29-year-old Kamara made 24 appearances for the club and scored four goals.
“Middlesbrough Football Club have this evening parted company with Kei Kamara, whose contract has been cancelled by mutual consent,” the club said in an official statement. “The club would like to thank Kei for his efforts over the last 12 months and wish him every success in his future career.”
Now a free agent, Kamara is open to explore his options. He could sign with an MLS club by the roster freeze date on Sept. 15.
Prior to joining the Championship club, Kamara spent eight seasons in MLS, where he featured for the Columbus Crew, San Jose Earthquakes, Houston Dynamo and Sporting Kansas City.
The Sierra Leone native also made a brief stop at Norwich City, where he played in 2013 while on loan from Sporting KC.
What do you make of Kamara’s release? Would you like to see him back in MLS? Which club could most use him?
