Ola Kamara -- Celebrates Goal -- LA Galaxy preseason


For all the attention on the other guy up top last week, a Saturday report by ESPN soccer columnist Jeff Carlisle indicates the LA Galaxy have extended forward Ola Kamara on a deal that significantly bumps his annual take.

Since joining the league with Columbus Crew SC in 2016, the 28-year-old Kamara has put up 35 goals and 5 assists in 62 MLS matches to date. He was traded to LA on January 20, with Gyasi Zardes and at least $400,000 of Targeted Allocation Money going to Columbus.
