Reports from Kamara’s former club club IFK Norrot a heart koping had earlier claimed that the 22-year-old Sierra Leonean striker had got a heart defect.

But DC United’s general manager Dave Kasper said: “The MLS cardiology consultant and a heart specialist at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital determined he could resume playing.

“Kamara will undergo testing at the end of each season.”

The Sierra Leone international’s move to DC United comes at a time when two Cameroonian players Patrick Ekeng and Jeanine Christelle Djomnang died of suspected heart problems.

Kasper added: “The player had a potential cardiac issue that could have eliminated him from playing. He was evaluated and found this was not the case.

“We went through proper medical testing and approvals from two top cardiology specialists.

“Certainly we went through a rigorous process, but once they cleared him to play, it gave us peace of mind.”

As of now, no transfer fee has not been agreed and paid for the player but Norrköping will be compensated if the player meets performance incentives or if he is sold in the future.

Kamara was originally examined as part of a Uefa requirement because IFK Norrkoping are due to take part in the qualifiers for next season’s Champions League.

‘He is a strong guy’

This initially forced Norrkoping to remove Kamara from their 2016 season squad to stop him from playing more matches.

“He is so happy and excited to be able to play again,” Kamara’s local agent Chernor Musa said.

“Physically and mentally he is prepared and he knows everything as he is a strong guy.

“He went through a difficult path and thanks to everyone who supported him.”

Experts from both Uefa and Fifa had advised Kamara against continuing playing football.

But now, the striker who scored six goals to help Norrköping win the 2015 Swedish league, is delighted that his career can resume.
