Signed by Watford from OGC Nice for €4m, Hassane Kamara only spent eight months at Vicarage Road before he was sold to Udinese.

A few eyebrows were raised when the fee was announced, as the Serie A side were said to have paid €19m for his services, with the left-back returning to the Championship side on loan for a season as well.

Kamara has since gone back to Udine from Watford for the current campaign, where he has mostly been a regular, and So Foot, in an interview with the 29-year-old, asked him about the ‘controversy’ surrounding his transfer, with both clubs owned by the Pozzo family.

He said: “I don’t know, and to be honest, these ownership issues are not my problem. It was a project that interested me, so I accepted. Udinese have been a stable club in Serie A for over 20 years, so that was enough to convince me.”

The defender also added that a move to Udinese was offered to him when he was at Watford, and the idea of discovering a new country and a new league appealed to him.

Kamara has made 16 appearances in all competitions for Udinese this season, even if he has started on the bench for the past five.

During his time at Watford, he played 51 times in all competitions,, scoring one goal and assisting another two.
