Norwich City fans may have to be patient if they're to see new loan signing Kei Kamara in action in the Premier League. The 28 year old Sierre Leone international - on loan from Major League Soccer club Sporting Kansas City - trained with his new teammates for the first time today.
'We're assessing him at the moment' said Norwich manager Chris Hughton, speaking ahead of Saturday's game with Fulham.
'Kei is a little bit behind in terms of fitness and sharpness, due to the travelling and also the MLS and the stage of their season.
'We'll assess that one overnight and tomorrow (Friday). We haven't brought him in for one or two games. He's here until the end of the season. We've brought him here to make an impact.
'He's come to help us. There's a fair bit of scope to where he can play. But we have to do the right thing'.
Hughton also described the availability of midfielders Anthony Pilkington and Alex Tettey for Saturday as as 'touch and go', but says his other players who returned from international duty are 'fit and available.
