Camara completes switch to Saints

Camara refused to play for Wolves after relegation
Wolves striker Henri Camara has signed for Premiership side Southampton until the end of the season.

The Senegal international was on loan to Celtic, but the Scottish champions agreed to release him.

Saints assistant boss Jim Smith told the club's website: "Camara has electric pace and that is one thing we have been lacking.

"We need pace to get in behind teams and this guy has it in abundance. He is someone we have wanted for some time."

Wolves had hoped to take Saints striker Brett Ormerod on loan in exchange but the former Blackpool man turned down the move.

Chief executive Jez Moxey said: "After lengthy discussions with Celtic over the last couple of days it was obvious they were keen to cut their losses.

"We decided it was in our best interests to let Camara move to a Premiership club where he will be in the shop window."
