Former Rangers striker Flo Kamberi is back in British football after completing a season-long loan move to Sheffield Wednesday – and the Albanian striker insists it is a “dream” move for him to join the Owls.
Kamberi is the latest in a line of signings by Owls boss Darren Moore and the former Rangers loanee admits he was always wanted to test himself in English football.
With Wednesday in League One, they will be one of the favourites for the title this season and Kamberi insists he has joined a “big club” despite their league status.
“I’m very happy, delighted to have everything done now with the paperwork and I can’t wait for the first game in front of the crowd,” he told swfc.co.uk.
“I got a FaceTime call from the gaffer, around 15 or 20 minutes and he spoke about how he sees the club, the project here, how he sees me and what sort of role I would have.
“From the first moment, I was very excited and I knew it was a no-brainer for me to come here.
“It’s the size of the club, the stadium and the manager. He knows what football is and I know I can develop under him. To play in England was always a dream of mine and now I’m at a big club.”
Kamberi joins another ex-Ger at Hillsborough, with Josh Windass also on the books in the Steel City.
His move to Wednesday should give him a chance to play regularly after a spell on loan at Aberdeen last season as his return to Switzerland with St. Gallen continues to go poorly.
After joining St. Gallen after his time at Ibrox, Kamberi lasted only a few months before he was pushed out of the exit on loan and it doesn’t appear he has any future in Switzerland.
Kamberi made nine appearances for Rangers while on loan at Ibrox from SPFL rivals Hibs, scoring one and contributing two assists before Covid-19 brought the 2019/20 to a premature halt.
