Just when we thought we might be able to keep Kei Kamara through the summer transfer window, deadline day fever set in.
Rumors coming out of England are saying that Kei Kamara is nearing a deal with Middlesbrough FC to play for the Football League Championship, the second level in English soccer.
Here is Sky Sports News' tweet.
Sky Sports sources understand that Kei Kamara has arrived in England on transfer deadline day ahead of a possible move: #SkyDeadlineDay— Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) September 2, 2013
Now, he may be in England because that is a stopover point going to Sierra Leone, where he has been called up to play in their final World Cup Qualifier. However this next tweet from BBC senior football reporter Ian Dennis says that Middlebrough and Kamara are close to a deal.

Absolutely nothing is confirmed yet, but Sky Sports News and BBC are typically pretty good sources out of England. Then, of course, there was this tweet from Robb Heineman.
This is not easy, but sometimes in sports you have to make tough, unpopular decisions. This is one of those days. #skcnation— Robb Heineman (@RobbHeineman) September 2, 2013
That looks like the unpopular decision may revolve around Kamara. We'll keep monitoring the situation and keep you updated with all the latest news out of England. The transfer window closes at 5 pm central time.
