Major League Soccer side Sporting Kansas City have yet to hear whether Norwich City want to make Kei Kamara's loan move permanent.

The Sierra Leone forward has quickly becoming a cult figure among Canaries fans, scoring in the win over Everton on February 23. Kamara will see his time in England come to an end on May 6, meaning he would not be available for the last two games of the season unless a permanent transfer is pushed through.

Sporting KC chief manager and technical director Peter Vermes believes Norwich – who have signed Dutch striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel for £8.5million from Sporting Lisbon for next season – could be holding off until they are certain of Premier League football.

Vermes said on the MLS club's official website: 'We are looking into it, but I haven't heard anything yet.

'We have already negotiated everything. Other than Kei saying he doesn't want to do it, it would pretty much go through. They are not really sure where they sit right now and where they are going to go.

'If they would be a little more secure in their position, I think it would be easier for them to make a deal one way or the other. Right now, I think that is why we're not hearing anything.'
