BRIAN SCIARETTA - Monday, July 30, 2012
The last hurdle for the completion of the transfer of Houston Dynamo cog Geoff Cameron to English Premier League club Stoke City now has a date set.

Under the current rules, a player without European Union citizenship can automatically secure a UK work permit by appearing in at least 75% of their country's national team games in official competitions over the last two years.

Cameron falls well short of this requirement, meaning he must go through an appeal which is now set.

"The date for the hearing is August 8," Stoke City press officer Nick Lucy told YA on Monday.

Appeals hearings can by problematic but several Americans have been successful in recent years. In January, Robbie Rogers and Tim Ream won their appeals.

Last year, Alejandro Bedoya and Robbie Findley were successful.
