Norwich City striker Kei Kamara says he harbours no bad feelings towards Stoke City despite not being signed by the club in December.
The Sierra Leone international trialled with Stoke for 10 days but was not given a permanent deal.
He eventually made his way to the Premier League after linking up with Norwich on loan from MLS outfit Sporting Kansas City.
And the 28-year-old will visit the Britannia Stadium this Saturday as a Norwich player, in a match that will see both clubs aiming for a victory that should secure their Premier League status.
“I had some good training sessions in my 10 days at Stoke and was able to play one of my [practice] games with Michael Owen up front,” Kamara said.
“I felt like I could have fitted in because I was more of an aerial threat but it didn’t work out.
“I was just excited to train with a Premier League side. I said thank you for the opportunity and went back home.
“Everybody has a different opinion and there’s no bad blood, no disrespect to the coaching staff over there.
“Everybody sees something different every day. I mean, before I had my fiancee someone else was with my fiancee who didn’t like her. They left her and I got her and I think she is the best woman ever. It’s just how it is.”
Kamara has started Norwich’s last six matches and despite scoring just once in nine appearances, has impressed with his link-up play.
The forward wants to add to his goal tally in his two remaining matches for Norwich and help keep Chris Hughton’s side in the Premier League.
“At the moment it’s definitely just a case of me being focused and enjoying the games I’ve played so far, finishing the next two and hopefully helping the team to stay in the top league…that’s the first goal,” he said.
Kamara also said he would like to stay permanently at Norwich with the club having an option to sign him as part of his loan deal.
