BRIAN SCIARETTA - Wednesday, August 8, 2012
US national team defender Geoff Cameron has won his appeal for a United Kingdom work permit and has finally completed his move from Houston Dynamo to Stoke City of the English Premier League.

Cameron, 27, fell well short of the required number of caps for a work permit to automatically be granted, requiring the American to go through an appeals process.

"Geoff Cameron won his work permit today," a source close to MLS told YA on Wednesday.

In recent years, most Americans have been successful in obtaining UK work permits through appeals. Earlier this year, Robbie Rogers of Leeds United and Tim Ream of Bolton were successful, while Robbie Findley and Alejandro Bedoya did the same in 2011.

Cameron and Stoke City will begin their 2012/13 English Premier League season on August 18 when they visit newly promoted Reading.
