Ipswich weigh up move for Camp

BY foxsports • January 14, 2013

West Ham have handed a new contract to youngster Matthias Fanimo which ties him to the club until the summer of 2015.

The left-sided winger or full-back has made two first-team appearances for the Hammers this term as a substitute in the Capital One Cup games against Crewe and Wigan.

The 18-year-old has also been a regular starter for the Development Squad in recent seasons.

Fanimo told the club's official website: "I think it's a good achievement to get another contract at the club.

"I enjoy playing here and I hope it continues. I was seven when I joined the club and I've come a long way. It's been a good journey and I've had some ups and downs but I think I'm doing pretty well for myself at the moment.

"It was definitely a good experience for me to come on and make my debut. It was a surprise to me and I'm glad that I did it.

"I want to get my Premier League debut under my belt because that would be another good experience for me. I just have to keep working hard and hopefully the manager notices me."

Camp has been informed he is free to leave the City Ground this month with his contract due to expire in the summer.

Forest boss Alex McLeish is looking to bring in a new keeper in this month's transfer window and will let Camp move on to free up space in his squad.

A number of clubs have been alerted to Camp's availability and the keeper is keen to sort out his future as soon as possible.

Goalkeeper has been a problematic position for Ipswich this season with the likes of Scott Loach and Arran Lee-Barrett unable to establish themselves as No.1 keeper at the club.

Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy has made a new goalkeeper one of his top priorities and he is weighing up a move to bring Camp to the club.

Camp is waiting to find what other offers come his way this month before making a decision on where to continue his career.
