Biography

Abu Kamara joined Norwich City's Under-18s scholars for the 2019/20 season. He had joined Norwich at Under-11 level and .played for Norwich's Under-16s in their 1-0 win over Ipswich in the Hospital Cup (8th May 2018)

He hit the headlines when he scored a hat-trick for Norwich's Under-18s as they beat Wolves 4-2 in the Midlands on 18th December 2020 in the third round of the FA Youth Cup.

On 13th January 2021 he signed his first professional contract with Norwich, keeping him at City until summer 2023. He said “It’s a proud moment for me and my family, it’s every kid’s dream to become a professional footballer and especially at a club like this, it’s a massive achievement for me and my family, so I’m over the moon. The club have shown a lot of faith in me and that gives me more confidence to do well, I really appreciate it from them. I try to get as many goals as I can to repay their faith in me. I’ve been here roughly six or seven years, I joined here at the end of the under-11s, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. From the school programme to where I am now, it’s been amazing really.”

Kamara was on the bench for Norwich's 0-0 draw with Brighton on 2nd April 2022.

He finished the 2021/22 season as the leading scorer in the Premier League 2 with 15 goals. He is described as bringing "composure, intelligence and quality to a team."

After being on the bench for a couple of Championship matches in 2022/23, Kamara made his first team debut on 1st April 2023 coming on as substitute for Teemu Pukki with 20 minutes remaining in the 1-0 home defeat to Sheffield United. He finished the season with three appearances. He also scored 13 goals in 15 Premier League 2 appearances for the Norwich Under-21s

On 21st June 2023 it was reported by Football Insider that Brentford were interesting in signing Kamara who is said to be firmly on their radar.

On 19th July 2023 he signed for Portsmouth on a season-long loan. "Abu is an exciting young prospect who can play across the front line," said Pompey boss John Mousinho. "He's got a really good goalscoring record for Norwich's development side. Now he comes here and will be competing for a place at League One level."

In January 2024, there was speculation that Championship sides Leicester and Stoke were both keen on signing Kamara who had scored seven goals in 34 appearances for Portsmouth as they pushed for promotion. With Kamara having entered the final 18 months of his Norwich deal, although there is a one-year option in the Canaries' favour, clubs are monitoring his situation in the final days of the January transfer window, TeamTalk have claimed.
