Exclusive: Palmer says Leeds and Newcastle toss up would’ve been difficult for Kamara

Choosing between Leeds United and Newcastle United would have been a difficult decision for Glen Kamara if serious offers were made during the transfer window, says ex-Whites midfielder Carlton Palmer.

According to TEAMtalk, both Premier League clubs were interested in the Rangers star, with the latter in particular having been keen.

In a boost for Rangers boss Steven Gerrard, though, Kamara remained at Ibrox as Leeds focused their attention on Dan James on deadline day while Newcastle had a 31st August to forget.

Had it come down to choosing between the two English top-flight outfits, though, Palmer is unsure which one Kamara would have opted for.

“It’s a difficult one as a player, isn’t it? It’s where you think you’re going to play the most football,” the ex-Leeds man said to FFC.

“Leeds have a settled side at the moment. I think he [Marcelo Bielsa] has his 1-11 that he relies on, that he knows he’s going to pick week in, week out, so it’s a difficult one.

“Do you go there, sit on the bench and wait for your opportunity, or do you go to a club and play?”

West Ham and Wolves were also credited with an interest in Kamara, so if he does decide to leave Scotland for England, it looks like he could have plenty of options.

And with little activity during the summer transfer window, failing to bring in Hamza Choudhury on loan from Leicester City on deadline day, Steve Bruce will probably be hoping to win the race in the future.
