The Glen Kamara rumour-mill has started spinning once again, and it could be time for him to leave Dundee.
The Finland international has been linked with a host of clubs, including Derby County and Rangers, who will both allegedly compete for his signature. He has been a decent performer this season for the Dee, but it might be time to lose the midfielder.
He’s out of contract at the end of the season and, if there are big clubs still wanting him in May, he will most likely be off. Dundee could get some money for the 23-year old in January, but how much of an effect would it have on Dundee’s survival bid?
A double edged sword
You only have to look to the Finish midfielder’s performance against Rangers to see how good he can be. He controlled the midfield, even when Jim McIntyre’s side were down to 10 men. It shows that Kamara has the ability to do the business against the big teams.
He is a fantastic box-to-box midfielder, who seems willing to get his foot on the ball and play at every opportunity. Alongside Kenny Miller, he has been leading Dundee’s survival bid.
All this would indicate Dundee should be fighting tooth and nail to keep the midfielder, but it’s not that simple. For one, it hasn’t been hard to become Dundee’s best player this season. They have been at the basement of the Premiership for the majority of the campaign.
While great defensively, Kamara doesn’t offer much going forward. He’s registered a single assist in the Premiership, with no goals to his name so far. He sits far too deep for a box-to-box midfielder and has to play further up the park. He has great technical ability, but he can’t express that at Dens Park.
It’s a double-edged sword for Dundee. If they sell Kamara,they lose their key midfielder but will have vital funds that could go towards the survival bid and the new stadium. If they keep him, they will have a better chance of staying up but may lose him for nothing in the summer. McIntyre has a huge decision to make in January.
