Fulham forward Aboubakar Kamara has finally completed his £3m transfer to Greek Super League side Aris.

The 26 year-old has signed a four year contract to become Aris’ club record signing after protracted negotiations between the Thessaloniki-based outfit and Fulham throughout the summer. Kamara made a brief substitute appearance as the Whites chased a winner at the end of their Championship opener against Middlesbrough earlier this month but was not in new coach Marco Silva’s long-term plans.

The move to Greece brings to an end Kamara’s colourful four year stay at Craven Cottage. Signed from Amiens for £5m in 2017, he scored seventeen goals in 92 appearances for Fulham, playing a key part in the club’s two promotions from the Championship, but struggled to hold down a regular spot in the starting line-up. The Mauritanian international sparked Claudio Ranieri’s fury when he refused to hand over a crucial spot-kick to regular taker Aleksandar Mitrovic and saw his effort saved. Kamara later fought with the Serbian striker during a yoga session and was arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm and criminal damage at Motspur Park after assaulting a security guard as he attempted to discuss his future with the Fulham hierarchy.
