Leeds United ready to release Bobby Kamwa
Leeds United are prepared to release young forward Bobby Kamwa so he can be free to join a new club, according to the Rotherham Advertiser.
The newspaper reports that Kamwa, 21, has been on trial with the Millers but has failed to convince Paul Warne he’s worthy of a deal.
It is understood that despite playing in two pre-season victories, Rotherham informed Kamwa on Saturday night that his trial has been unsuccessful.
Warne has been quoted by the Rotherham Advertiser as saying: “There are a few clubs who want him.”
Best for all parties
Kamwa has another year left on his deal at Leeds but has never made the senior side.
He even struggled to play regularly for the Under-23s last season with the Cameroonian attacker starting eight times in Premier League 2.
He grabbed two goals as Leeds won the Premier League 2 Division 2 title but ultimately, he’s 21-years-old now and the time is surely right for him to move on.
It does not bode well that Kamwa has failed a trial at Rotherham too.
Obviously, there’s a lot more to it than just winning matches but Kamwa played a role in two wins, so that would definitely have counted for him to a degree.
Ultimately, if he cannot win a contract at a League One club then there’s not really a reason for him to stay at Thorp Arch.
We hope that Kamwa finds a new club sooner rather than later so he can settle down before the season starts, get to know his new teammates and hit the ground running in the league.
Unfortunately, it might mean he steps down to League Two or even non-league for that to happen but sometimes you need to take a step backwards before a giant leap forward.
Good luck, Bobby.
