Cameron deal close as work permit granted

Cameron deal close as work permit granted

Stoke City have been granted a work permit for United States International, Geoff Cameron.

The Potters, who initially had a work permit for the 27 year-old versatile Houston Dynamo player rejected, appealed the decision, and with help of the U.S.A. manager Bruce Arena, the permit has been accepted.

Chief Executive Tony Scholes and manager Tony Pulis presented City`s case to the appeals panel at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester.

Scholes told Stokecityfc.com: "We are delighted that the appeals panel have approved the work permit and we are now in a position to conclude the transfer.

"It`s been a difficult period between agreeing the transfer deal and the hearing, most difficult for Geoff in particular because his life has been on hold."

He added: "Thankfully though, we have now progressed to a point where Geoff can focus on the start to his career at the Britannia Stadium."

Tony Pulis and his backroom staff will now look to conclude the deal, hopefully in time for Stoke`s final friendly versus Greuther Furth of Germany on Friday night.

Cameron, who can play anywhere across the back four, and also can play in a midfield berth if required, has been capped by the United States by 5 times and relishing his opportunity of a new start in England.

He tweeted: "Looking forward to this new journey!!!"
