Fulham striker Kamara would take PSG over Celtic

Fulham striker Diomansy Kamara says he may turn down the chance to return to Celtic next season in favour of joining Paris Saint-Germain.

Fulham striker Diomansy Kamara says he may turn down the chance to return to Celtic next season in favour of joining Paris Saint-Germain.

Celtic want Kamara to turn his six-month stint at Parkhead into a permanent deal but are reluctant to meet Fulham’s £2.5 million buy-out option in his loan contract.

That expires at the end of the month and with both Paris Saint-Germain and Bordeaux prepared to sign the Senegalese international for his full £3.8m fee, Kamara, right, is likely to have played his last game for Celtic. He said: “France would be a good option.

Paris Saint-Germain would be a dream for me. When you start in football you always have dreams. One of mine was to play for Senegal and I have done that for almost 10 years now. Another would be PSG. It’s something that is close to my heart and to go from watching in the stands to the pitch, knowing all my family were watching, would be a nice feeling.

“Everything went well [at Celtic], I played a dozen matches and scored four goals. Celtic Park is incredible. They call it Paradise and you can see why. I played in the derby there and it was something else, it was an incredible experience.

“But in all honesty, the level of Scottish football is average. Two or three clubs aren’t too bad. But I’m still under contract at Fulham and I am going to take my time to decide where I will be next year.”
