Fulham striker Aboubakar Kamara has completed a permanent transfer to Greek Super League side Aris, signing a four-year contract.

The transfer was finally signed off on Tuesday afternoon, with the striker arriving in Thessaloniki to complete the move on Monday.

His new club, Aris, had announced that the player was going to sign on their official twitter account on Monday, however paperwork still needed to be exchanged at that stage.

The deal is understood to be worth up to £4 million for Kamara, who becomes Aris’ most expensive signing in their history.

Kamara joined Fulham from Amiens in 2017 for a reported fee of £5.25 million.

The 26-year-old leaves Fulham after four years of service and 94 appearances, including two play-off final victories. The Mauritanian international started both of Fulham’s promotion-winning matches, against Aston Villa and Brentford in 2018 and 2020 respectively.

His departure comes with Fulham closing in on their third signing of the summer, Brazilian striker Rodrigo Muniz, who is currently quarantined in Spain ahead of completing his transfer from Flamengo.

Fulham FC statement
The Club can confirm that Aboubakar Kamara has joined Greek Super League side Aris Thessaloniki on a permanent transfer for an undisclosed fee.

After arriving in London in the summer of 2017, Kamara was a part of two successful promotion campaigns with Fulham, starting each of our Play-Off Final victories at Wembley.

He departs having scored 17 goals in 94 appearances.

We would like to thank Abou for all his efforts during his four years at the Club, and wish him all the best during the next stage of his career in Greece.

Tony Khan said: "I’m grateful to Abou for his service to Fulham since his arrival in 2017. He made valuable contributions over the years, and he started for us at Wembley in both of our Play-Off Final wins in 2018 and 2020.

"I expect that he’ll excel for his new team during the next chapter of his career in Greece, and all of us at Fulham wish him all the best, and we thank him for his time at the Club. Good luck Abou!"
