Jabba's Comments

French centre-back picked up on a year's loan from RC Lens by Peter Reid.

Camara came onto the scene in the French Second Division at Saint-Etienne, where he came to the attention of Internazionale. But like several other players who have moved to the San Siro (well, Robbie Keane) he found himself unable to get a game for the first team, and after a loan spell at Empoli, was back in France for a season at Bastia. A move to Marseille improved his profile - his one cap coming in the Confederations Cup. A move to Lens wasn't entirely successful - injuries and a dispute with the coach over him being played out of position restricted him to just 14 games last season.

He had a decent start to his Leeds career, scoring a goal at Boro and generally looking okay when played alongside Radebe or Matteo. But when paired with Roque Junior or Duberry, and with Paul Robinson failing to organise from behind, he looked out of his depth and was dropped once Eddie Gray took over as caretaker. He had one final appearance at Southampton, and despite the fact that Duberry and Harte had played at least as poorly alongside him, he didn't even make it to the subs bench from there on in.

josh hoy says: hope you like it at leeds and have a realy succesful lone spell and stay

Jake massey 8 years old says: Im going to the Super LEEDS vs Arsnel and i hope Super CAMARA scores from a corner good look camara.

Tommo says: I saw Mr Camara in Leeds City Centre during the week. He was talking in french to a woman in a suit shop, she looked confused.
