STOKE CITY have been given the go-ahead to complete the signing of American international Geoff Cameron from Houston Dynamo.
The Club were successful with their appeal to obtain a work permit for the 27-year-old utility player at a hearing in Manchester on Wednesday.
Chief Executive Tony Scholes and manager Tony Pulis presented City's case to the appeals panel which was convened at the Etihad Stadium.
"We are delighted that the appeals panel have approved the work permit and we are now in a position to conclude the transfer," said Scholes.
"It's been a difficult period between agreeing the transfer deal and the hearing, most difficult for Geoff in particular because his life has been on hold."
He added: "Thankfully though, we have now progressed to a point where Geoff can focus on the start to his career at the Britannia Stadium."
