Kei Kamara: Granted visa for Norwich move

Norwich have confirmed the loan signing of Sporting Kansas City's Kei Kamara after the Sierra Leone forward was granted a visa.

The 28-year old's move from Major League Soccer to Carrow Road until May 6 was announced last week, subject to receiving immigration clearance, which has now been granted, the Canaries have announced.

The club wrote on Twitter: "@norwichcityfc are pleased to confirm forward @keikamara has been granted a visa to join us on loan from Sporting Kansas City."

A statement on the club's official website added: "City are pleased to confirm forward Kei Kamara has been granted a visa to come and play for Norwich City on loan from Sporting Kansas City until May 6.

"The 28-year-old Sierra Leone international will fly into the UK to join his new Canary team-mates over the next 24 hours and will be available for selection for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash against Fulham at Carrow Road."

The deal for Kamara was agreed last Wednesday, ahead of the 1-1 draw with Tottenham, and Luciano Becchio followed from Leeds 24 hours later on transfer deadline day.

Kamara wrote on Twitter: "Happy to say I have picked up my passport/visa & getting on a flight tonite to England."

Norwich boss Chris Hughton was enthusiastic about Kamara.

Speaking after the Spurs draw, Hughton said: "I think he'll give us another dimension in the forward area.

"He's a player that's done very, very well in the MLS over the last few seasons, scored a lot of goals, a lot of assists.

"From what I've seen of him, we're not just taking an average player from that division. We're taking a player from that division that has excelled in recent seasons.

"How quickly he can adapt, how much he can give us. We're quite looking forward to the prospect of seeing that."

Norwich are 14th in the Premier League, seven points clear of the relegation zone, but have just two wins from 12 in all competitions.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
