Contract talks for Cameron

Stoke City

Stoke's Geoff Cameron has revealed he has spoken to the club about a new deal.

The American international is currently in the final 18 months of his contract in the Potteries, having signed from Houston Dynamo in 2012.

Since then his versatility has proved a huge asset for the club, with him featuring in a number of positions although he has made just seven Premier League appearances this season due to a knee injury.

Despite his fitness problems, Cameron remains a key part of Mark Hughes’ plans and has revealed the club have approached him about a new deal.

The 31-year-old says he has rejected a number of offers from abroad in recent years and is keen to stay in England, as he believes the Premier League remains the toughest domestic competition in world football.

“I have this season and then next season is my last year and Stoke are interested in trying to re-sign me now and we’ve had talks,” the Sentinel quotes Cameron as saying.

“I’ve had offers before in other transfer windows to go to Italy, Spain and Germany, but it’s funny because a lot of those players want to come and play in the Premier League.

“I think the weather would be a little bit nicer in Spain and it would be a challenge and cool to play in Italy to get a whole different type of scenery and challenge, but I don’t think there’s a bigger challenge than playing in the Premier League every weekend.”
