Chris Kamara's time on Sky Sports' Soccer Saturday is set to come to an emotional end at the culmination of the current season as the overhaul of the show continues.

Remaining fans of the show will be devastated to see the former Brentford and Leeds midfielder turned cult hero summariser leave Soccer Saturday after two decades of contribution.

The 64-year-old earned an army of online followers for not taking himself too seriously during interactions with pal Jeff Stelling over the years, including the memorable: "I don't know Jeff, has there?"

Kamara and Stelling could also potentially be joined by Alan McInally in leaving the Saturday show, with Matt Le Tissier, Phil Thompson and Charlie Nicholas all departing back in 2020.

The Mail reports news of Kamara's potential upcoming departure, saying that he 'does not wish to steal' the thunder of Stelling with his departure already announced.

They add that McInally may then follow suit, despite the broadcaster saying that they have no plans of parting ways with the Scotsman this summer.

The previous exodus was slammed by the trio in question, with an emotional Le Tissier saying at the time: "I just wanted to say a massive thank-you first and foremost to everybody who has taken the time out to respond on my Twitter feed with message of support."

Stelling said of his upcoming edit back in October: "I have come to the incredibly difficult decision that this will be my last season

"This is my decision – there has been no pressure. Sky have been absolutely brilliant with me, as they always have been.

"I am not intending to retire but it is time to let somebody else have a go at what is the best job in the world."
