UPDATE: Stoke confirmed the new contract that will keep Cameron at the club until 2018.

Geoff Cameron is going to stick around at Stoke. According to ESPNFC, the American signed a new contract with the Potters that will keep him at the club long-term.

Cameron's contract with Stoke was set to expire next year. He had asked for a transfer and seemed set for an exit from the club, but he's had a good season. Despite being sidelined for a stretch with a hernia, Cameron made 30 appearances for the Potters. The majority of those came at right back, which probably hasn't thrilled the defender, but at least he's playing regularly and has played himself into Mark Hughes' squad. Now he'll get to be a part of it for a few more years.

It never appeared as if Cameron would leave Europe. Even if he left Stoke, he'd have interest from other clubs, probably in the Premier League. Still, it's good to see him sticking at a club he's spent some time at. It's also good to see any American succeeding in Europe after so many have left to go play in MLS. So Cameron will stay on at Europe, and we'll see how he factors into the national team, where he's played just once since the World Cup.
