Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's for 8/17.. Kamara contract talks, Meram to make Iraq return, Steve says "yes" to DC

Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk: Three Crew SC-related social media topics of interest for today.

Kamara contract talks stall

Ola Kamara is in the second season of a four year deal.

But one source said that there were multiple offers from foreign teams during the just concluded summer transfer window, and that Kamara will explore moves away from MLS after the conclusion of the current season. Link

Kamara's goals per 90 is down from a scintillating 0.77 last season to 0.52 this season. He missed a great chance against RSL (yet scored two) and San Jose which could've led to a win and a tie on the road.

So, there's things to question on both sides until December perhaps.

But, regardless if Columbus is unwilling to pay an excellent DP contract considering 28 goals in 50 games they're crazy.

But, perhaps the offer Kamara is considering is too high? Or he just wants to attempt a greater level?
Regardless, he's still under contract for another two seasons. So, if someone wants to buy overseas will have to be a very attractive offer.

Currently it's August. No transfer talks can occur until December.

There's plenty of time.

Would be more surprised if there weren't a few stalls. Big decisions for Kamara and Crew SC.

In addition, Ola's 27.
Strikers are said to peak, hit their prime at 28.

So, if Ola Kamara just wants to move on and try his one chance at a top Premier level league if that offers comes in can anyone blame that?

I just wish these talks could stay in the background until we conclude the current season were in.

Meram called up for Iraq qualifiers.

Steve says "yes" to DC.

And I say "Yuck bro."

But got to do what you got to do when your out of Denmark after a half season.

Which I guess entails being Bill Hamid's backup. 
Wish him the best. Not sure what his road will be to become a starter again somewhere but confident he'll do the work to try.

Zack Steffen has made about no one long for Clark. But, appreciate his work while here.
