Out-of-contract Clovis Kamdjo wants the chance to win a new deal at York City by proving his worth in pre-season.
The 27-year-old utility man has only made one 82nd-minute substitute outing for City since suffering cruciate and anterior ligament damage to his knee back in November 2016. That appearance came during this month’s 2-0 defeat to North Yorkshire neighbours Harrogate Town but, despite joining the club when the ambition was to bounce straight back into the Football League,
Kamdjo is hoping he can stay on the Bootham Crescent books during a likely second season in National League North, having only managed 17 senior games during his two-year stay. Kamdjo would be free to leave on a free transfer under the Bosman ruling at the end of this campaign but the former Cameroon under-17 international said: “I want to use the summer to get myself fired up, fit and ready for next season.
“The manager hasn’t really seen me fully fit so, hopefully, I can get to come back for a good pre-season, prove myself and see what happens. I’ve not really spoken to any other clubs because I’m 28 this year and, when you’ve been out injured, you don’t really talk to anybody until you’re fit.
“The manager has been OK with me and I just want him to judge me when I can show him what I can do.”
