City boss confirms American international is back available for selection...
MARK HUGHES has delivered positive news on the availability of Geoff Cameron ahead of this weekend’s trip to Wembley Stadium.
The Potters travel to the capital on Saturday to take on Tottenham Hotspur, and Hughes is expecting to be able to call upon the versatile American.
The 32-year-old has been out of action since October after sustaining concussion in the build-up to the Premier League clash with Watford.
However, speaking to the media on Thursday afternoon, Hughes confirmed that Cameron is back and available for selection.
“Geoff Cameron has had a full week of training and he is available.
“We have been cautious with him - you have to manage head injuries carefully.
“There is a lot of discussion surrounding concussion and long-term effects of it, so we have adhered to the protocol."
“Geoff has to be comfortable in his own mind too, and we have allowed him the flexibility to do that.”
He added: “We haven’t pushed him, we have let the injury run its course and hopefully he is over it now.”
Hughes did however confirm that Jese Rodriguez won’t be part of the travelling party down to London this weekend due to personal reasons.
“At the moment there is an on-going issue with his child’s health, and he won’t be available this weekend.
“He has had to go back home because of that, and that is worrying of course - we all send our best wishes to him and his family.”
