One can only now start to begin to believe that the Geoff Cameron to Stoke City in England deal may just be dying a slow death.
Another business day in England has passed and still no resolution to the situation which hand-cuffs all parties involved.
Personally, I am surprised that Stoke City has remained in this potential deal this long and has not told MLS that their offer is off the table.
If in fact it is true that the offer is for $2.5 million or in that neighborhood and it has been deemed a fair offer , then why the delay?
One can only think that MLS is trying to convince Cameron to stay on in the league but I would have to think this is fruitless. This is a player that wants to pursue his dreams over-seas and has clearly stated so.
Reports of a work permit providing the hold up is far from the truth.
Cameron has Scottish ancestry which does not automatically qualify him but many a player has passed the litmus test of playing in Europe despite being short of international caps.
Dreams, possibility, nobody wants them crushed.
Cameron has mentioned numerous times on Sports Talk 790 with me that playing in Europe was a dream of his.
A dream that seems to be fading sadly for all parties involved. Unless?
