Stoke City and U.S. men’s national team defender/midfielder Geoff Cameron hasn’t played a club match since late October. What exactly is going on with the veteran?
A knee injury has kept him sidelined. What was once thought to be a short term spell away from action has been prolonged into a 10-week ordeal. Cameron has traveled back to the USA to get his knee examined by specialists in Los Angeles, but is hopeful he’ll return to the field in February, he told ESPNFC.
While February could mark his return to Stoke City, there are rumors that a return to Major League Soccer could be on the horizon.
Paul Tenorio tweeted that four Western conference teams have reached out to Cameron about joining them after the 2017-18 Premier League season when his contract at the Britannia Stadium expires.

It seems a good bet that one of those teams is the Houston Dynamo, Cameron’s original MLS club that he spent five seasons with before leaving for the Premier League.
At 31 years of age, he could be in line for one more big contract in MLS like so many of his USMNT teammates have received in the past few years.
