Report: Brek Shea Nearing Move to Stoke City

Twellman: Shea deal agreed with Stoke City

A potential bombshell was dropped on Twitter this afternoon as ESPN analyst Taylor Twellman reported that Brek Shea is nearing a transfer to English Premier League side Stoke City. The reported transfer fee is in the range of $3.5 million.

Something extremely important to note about this move is that it's pending a physical and given Shea's recent surgery, that could be an issue.

If the deal does go through, initial reaction would be that with Jackson and Fabian Castillo showing well in the second half of the year, Brek Shea was deemed surplus to requirements and the money was too good to turn down with potential signings already in Fernando Clavijo's crosshairs.

A move to the Premier League would be huge for Shea as he looks to get back in the national team picture, but the timing would seem weird as Shea recovers from off-season surgery in a time where he hasn't played in nearly 6 months. I'm sure there will be much more to come out of this one so stay tuned
