Bunbury and Kamara News

Some player news from over the weekend, first, Teal Bunbury's trial/training period at Stoke City is now over, but the news out of the UK continues to talk about Bunbury's time there as a trial, not training. Word is that Tony Pulis, Stoke City's manager, has played down the potential to sign Bunbury, which would seem to fit in with the whole "he's not on trial" line that Sporting KC has stated since he scored for Stoke in their reserve match. But comments like those from Pulis have also from time to time meant that an offer is forth coming and the team really is interested inn the player. Instead saying that it's unlikely as a bit of a bargaining chip in their favor.

In news for a Wizards player, Kei Kamara is trying to get himself back onto the Sierra Leone national team. Kamara had been suspended but the Sierra Leone FA shortly after the team's draw with Egypt earlier this year after comments he made about the FA covering his travel expenses. He is looking to apologize for those comments in hopes it will get the suspension lifted and give him the chance to represent his country as they try to qualify for the 2012 African Cup of nations. Sierra Leone currently sits in 3rd place in group G after two games, with 2 points. Their next game is in March when they play Niger. The top team in each group qualifies and the best 2 second place teams (plus the second place team in the 5 team Group K) qualify for the tournament in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
