Brian Sciaretta has the scoop. MLS agreeing Friday to send the Houston Dynamo center defender to Stoke City. The two sides are near completion on the financial terms and final announcement is expected on early next week.
The US defender has long been considered ready for the international game. His assuredness on the ball combined with his trackback ability makes him a nice complement to some of the other central defenders (Huth, Shawcross) in the mix at the EPL side.
