Geoff Cameron Secures Work Permit, Completes Move To Stoke

Geoff Cameron is officially a Stoke City player, finally. After drawn out negotiations between Stoke City and the Houston Dynamo and MLS, then having to wait as his work permit appeal hearing was delated, Cameron's UK work permit was finally approved on Wednesday, clearing the way for him to become an official Stoke City player.

It was vital for Cameron and Stoke that he finally get his work permit approved because the season is now just 10 days away. Cameron has been in Stoke and with the club since the deal was agreed to, but he couldn't officially join the club, relegating him to polo wearing, watching and clapping. Now he has 10 days to get back to full fitness and prepare for his first season in the English Premier League.

This deal also brings closure to the Dynamo, who needed the deal to go through so they could move forward. With Cameron sold, they can use the cap space that was freed up to sign another player. That player is expected to be Ricardo Clark, who has been released by Frankfurt and is available on a free to rejoin the club that he left in 2009.
