On Tuesday, Houston Dynamo defender Geoff Cameron agreed to terms with Barclays Premier League side Stoke City on a deal that will bring the US international defender to Britannia Stadium.
Talks between Stoke and MLS have been ongoing for weeks, with the two sides finally agreeing to terms on Tuesday. Cameron will meet up with his new club in Orlando, FL, where the side has been stationed during their US tour.
Stoke most recently faced MLS side Columbus Crew on Tuesday night. After taking a lead in the first half, Stoke gave up a pair of goals in the final 20 minutes to fall to the Crew 2-1.
Barring a problem obtaining a work permit, Cameron will finally be living his dream of playing in the Premier League.
“It’s our understanding through our communication with Stoke is that they’ve agreed to personal terms,” said Dynamo president Chris Canetti on the deal.
“We are very confident and have a package put together and thing this will be done pretty good. It’s not really my side to talk about but we are very, very confident,” he added.
Cameron has most likely played his last game in Houston. The American made 116 appearances for the Dynamo since 2008, along with five caps for the US National team.
