Geoff Cameron Maybe Heading To Stoke City After MLS Maybe Agrees To Sale

MLS has finally agreed to sell Geoff Cameron to Stoke City, if you believe Brian Sciaretta. But if you believe Jesus Ortiz, the league has not agreed to sell Cameron and he is staying with the Houston Dynamo, at least for now.

Stoke and the Dynamo agreed to a deal that would see Cameron move to England for just under $3 million, pending his getting a UK work permit as expected, but MLS has been hesitant to finalize the deal. Because of the single-entity nature of MLS, the league actually owns the contracts of all players so they have to agree to any sales and as of now, they have not agreed to the sale of Cameron, maybe.

If Cameron is sold at the agreed upon price, Houston will receive $1.8 million and the rest will go to the league. The Dynamo would be able to use up to $667,000 of that money as allocation on players. Yes, everything about MLS is confusing and weird, and this transfer saga just about sums it all up.

So has Cameron been sold yet? It depends if you believe Sciaretta or Ortiz.
