Fulham striker Diomansy Kamara has revealed he rejected a rival offer over the summer because they wanted him to skip the African Nations Cup.

"I had another proposition at the start from a club that refused me to play the African Cup so I did not sign there," Senegal international Kamara told setantasports.com.

"Then I discussed it with the coach before coming here and he totally understood my position so I thank him for that even if it will be a handicap for me and a little for the team."
