Partizan confirm Medo departure, defensive enforcer en route to Bolton

Marco Luzzani

It's all happening a bit quickly, but then again it has to with the transfer deadline coming in just over 24 hours. Last night, we told you about reports of Sierra Leone and FK Partizan defensive midfielder Medo (AKA Mohamed Kamara) saying goodbye to his old teammates and flying to Bolton for talks.

According to a small release on his club's official site, Medo has in fact left the building:

Early in the morning, Medo Kamara left Partizan camp in Belek and returned to Belgrade via Istanbul as he is supposed to travel to England and sign a contract with yet unnamed English club.

Last night we received official comformation of Kamara`s departure and during the dinner, when players found out the news, Kamara received standing ovation. He was also handed over a jersey signed by all of his teammates.

That "yet-unnamed English club" is in fact Bolton. Kamara had some six months left on his current contract and was not going to sign an extension with the Belgrade-based club. As a result, Bolton Wanderers would have to pay a nominal fee for his services, rumored to be in the €350,000 region. Medo was previously linked in a (very) sensational £16 million move to Tottenham, but who knows how accurate that was.

Either way, Medo is highly rated and has proven experience as a defensive enforcer type. The kind of player who can marshall the back line will providing link-up play.

The full statement (here) contains a few pictures of Medo with his teammates and the aforementioned signed jersey.
