Houston Dynamo have admitted that they are close to selling US international defender Geoff Cameron to Stoke.
The MLS club’s president Chris Canetti believes Stoke and Houston are on their way to agreeing a transfer fee, which will see Cameron head to England.
“We had a positive weekend where there were good discussions and both sides kind of understood what it’s going to take to make a deal happen,” Canetti said.
Stoke reportedly value Cameron at US$2 million, while Houston want US$3 million for the 26-year-old defender.
Cameron has played 143 matches for Houston in five seasons with the club.
Houston head coach Dominic Kinnear reckons Cameron would be a great pick-up for Stoke.
“I think he’s one of those who can play anywhere on the field,” Kinnear said after Houston’s most recent game, a 4-0 win over DC United.
“He happened to sit in the middle of the midfield for us tonight, and I thought he had a very good game considering what’s happening with him.
“I thought his mental toughness was very good.”
Cameron believes the big win could be the perfect way to leave Houston if a deal can be done with Stoke.
“It was a great way to end it here, especially if it was my last game,” Cameron said.
“Can’t thank the Dynamo fans enough.
“They were amazing tonight and always are.”
