Transfer talks continue
Stoke are still locked in talks with Huston Dynamo over a move for Geoff Cameron and are hopeful a deal will happen.
Reports in the US have claimed that Stoke's opening bid of £650,000 was rejected as Major League Soccer, who own the rights to every player, held out for £1.9million.
It had been suggested that a move was unlikely to happen as Stoke were unwilling to go that high but following talks over the weekend a deal is still very much on.
The two parties still have to reach a compromise over the fee but Dynamo president Chris Canetti sounds optimistic over the chances of a move being agreed.
"We had a positive weekend where there were good discussions and both sides kind of understood what it's going to take to make a deal happen," he revealed.
"We will share proposals and see if we can get closer to a deal."
