Brek Shea was conspicuously absent from the second FC Dallas training session on Monday according to Robert Walker of the FC Dallas Examiner.
To add further intrigue, the club released this three-sentence message on the club website:
“We have received interest from a number of European clubs regarding Brek Shea.
Brek is traveling there this evening and as a result, he will not be in attendance at training tomorrow.
Currently, there is no deal in place with any club and we have no further details at this time.”
Former Houston Dynamo defender/midfielder Geoff Cameron already plays at Stoke City and later in the day, there was further speculation that he would follow the utility midfielder on the culturally mindboggling journey from Texas to Stoke.
According to Soccer by Ives, Stoke offered $3 million offer for Shea, which FC Dallas countered with a price of more than $4 million. Pending a physical, they will split the difference.
