Apparently Stoke have tendered an offer to the Houston Dynamo/MLS for the services of Geoff Cameron.
It is likely that Cameron is being looked at by Stoke as a midfield player based on their current center backs and needs.
One wonders how this will play out but I see this as a win win for the Dynamo if Cameron heads to Europe to see out his dreams and realize potential.
One must think the offer is somewhere in the neighborhood of 2 million dollars, that is my guess.
Cameron has made it clear that he wants European football and has been linked to Stoke, Everton and Schalke, what an amazing opportunity to become a part of an English Premier League squad that will be fighting again for survival. The environment, experience would only be good for his game.
This seems a no brainer to me based on what I know , player that wants to go, excellent money in this day and age for an MLS player and an opportunity for the Dynamo to re-invest in their club potentially at the striker position after getting a piece of the transfer.
The Dynamo have enough cover at the back with Andre Hainault, Jermaine Taylor, Bobby Boswell, Cory Ashe , Nathan Sturgis and the emerging Warren Creavalle to absorb the loss of Cameron.
If it happens the MLS/ Dynamo/Dominic Kinnear should take amazing pride in identifying Geoff Cameron, nurturing him and advancing him professionally.
It is a win win and the club can re-invest and look to supplement Oscar Boniek Garcia the recent designated player signing.
