COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Columbus Crew SC has traded arguably one of its most popular players, Kei Kamara to the New England Revolution.

“Kei had a memorable 2015 season and we recognize and understand how popular and productive he was, so this decision was not one we made lightly,” said Head Coach Gregg Berhalter. “Our actions will always reflect the values of our club and we believe this transaction will improve our competitiveness this year and in future years.”

According to the Crew’s website, Kamara scored 22 regular-season goals in 2015 and posted 135 shots.

The Columbus Crew faces the Colorado Rapids this Saturday at 7:30pm.
