In breaking news, Derby County have just announced via the club website that they have signed Guinea international Abdoul Camara from French Ligue 1 side Angers SCO for what the Rams are calling “an undisclosed fee.”
County say that Camara, born in Mamou, Guniea and a France international at U17, U18 and U21 levels has singed a 3-and-a-half-year deal at the iPro after passing a medical today. Camera, who appeared in 17 games for Angers this term, helping the club to third place in Ligue 1, was an integral part of Angers’ promotion to the French top flight last season, scoring six goals and providing two assists.
Paul Clement, Derby’s head coach reflects Derby’s satisfaction at capturing what the club terms as an addition to the “attacking talent” at the club, Clement telling the club’s website that, “Abdoul Camara is a player that we have been monitoring closely and we’re pleased to welcome him to Derby County. He has performed very well in Ligue 1 this year and we feel that he has the right attributes to make an impact in a Derby shirt. I am sure he will settle in well and be an important part of the squad in the second half of the season and into the future.”
25-year-old Camara has played ten games for Guinea, scoring four goals after making his debut in the 2012 African Cup of Nations.
