Stoke have confirmed they have reached an agreement to sign FC Dallas winger Brek Shea.
The United States international's move from the Major League Soccer outfit is subject to him passing a medical and obtaining a work permit. Shea was a spectator at Stoke's 2-2 home Barclays Premier League draw with Wigan and after the game Potters boss Tony Pulis spoke about his optimism of wrapping up a deal for the 22-year-old.
"I think it is close now, and we are hoping that we can get that deal done in the next day or so," said Pulis, quoted on www.stokecityfc.com.
