With Kamara’s contract set to expire next summer, the former Arsenal academy product is free to talk with foreign clubs (including English clubs) as early as January ahead of a free transfer summer move.
But Derby should instead look to bring him to Pride Park as early as possible, with Dundee likely to accept a potential bargain figure in January instead of risk losing him for free six months later.
Kamara has an abundance of power, pace and strength in midfield and his impressive performances in the Scottish Premiership has also caught the attentions of Old Firm duo Celtic and Rangers (Daily Mail).
Frank Lampard has set his side out in his preferred 4-3-3 formation with one midfielder holding, one set to link the play and the other (Chelsea loanee Mason Mount) pushing forward and getting into scoring positions.
But one evident room for improvement is the holding role, with both Bradley Johnson and Craig Bryson not accustomed to sitting so deep and not having the necessary attributes to thrive there.
Joe Ledley and Tom Huddlestone are fellow options but both being the wrong side of 30 they lack pace and movement, while summer signing George Evans has struggled with injuries having featured just once.
Kamara is ideal for Derby in the short-term, and considering he is just 22 years of age, he has the potential to be a key figure for the east Midlands club for several years to come.
