Geoff Cameron returns to Stoke with sights set on regular first-team spot

Geoff Cameron
Geoff Cameron returns to Stoke's preseason in good form after a fine Copa America.

While England's overhyped players were stumbling their way to inevitable failure at Euro 2016, Geoff Cameron and his American colleagues were pitting their wits against the rest of the world's finest in the Copa America. They fared admirably too, eventually meeting their fate courtesy of a 4-0 loss to a Lionel Messi-inspired Argentina in the semifinal on June 22.

He'll now enjoy a short break before being reunited with his club colleagues in Stoke for preseason training. But question marks remain...

Stoke links to Saido Berahino and Nathan Redmond suggest British focus?

CouldĀ Saido Berahino arrive at Stoke this summer?

When Tony Pulis was sacked from Stoke in June 2005 the Icelandic owners cited failure to exploit the foreign market as a key factor in their decision to part ways with the Welshman. Fast forward to his latest departure from the Potteries in 2013 and there's little to suggest he took heed of that historical warning with very few of his signings coming from anywhere other than the British Isles during his second spell in charge.

While this was never something that was explicitly referenced at that...

Glenn Whelan impresses at Euro 2016 amid questions over Stoke role

Zlatan and Ireland players
Glenn Whelan, right, was imperious as Republic of Ireland drew with Sweden at Euro 2016.

When Mark Hughes arrived at Stoke in 2013 eager to put his own stamp on the club, fans could have been be forgiven for thinking that it was a case of out with the old and in with the new.

Given the sea change needed to implement his preferred way of playing, though, he soon became aware of the need to transition his side to a less direct and disciplined approach. That meant retaining a number of the old guard to help ease that evolution with the likes of Jon Walters, Peter Crouch and Glenn Whelan...

Stoke academy well placed to start producing young Premier League talent

Moha El Ouriachi
Moha El Ouriachi is one who could benefit from moving to Stoke.

English football has changed. While previous generations of fans were brought up on the terraces watching hometown heroes live out their dreams, today's game is entirely different. With the stakes so high in the most lucrative football league competition in the world, there is a pressure to remain at the top table and for most that comes at the expense of the local lads coming through the academy system.

In fact, such is the power of the Premier League that clubs are now stacked with kids from across...

Xherdan Shaqiri to Besiktas rumours gives Mark Hughes a dilemma

Besiktas reportedly want to sign Stoke playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri.

The transfer rumour mill goes into overdrive around this time of year and for Stoke fans, one development has caught the eye.

Turkish champions Besiktas have been linked with Xherdan Shaqiri and were said to be preparing a £15 million bid. Prior to that rumour surfacing, the subject of Shaqiri had been a hot one after a largely indifferent season during his maiden campaign in English football. Following a then-record £12 million move from Inter Milan in the summer of 2015 he arrived...
