In an interview Saturday morning on The Orange Slice, 1560 The Game's soccer show, Houston Dynamo and United States Men's National Team midfielder/defender Geoff Cameron claimed he is close to signing a new deal with the Dynamo.
Orange Slice: How’s your contract talk going? Do you think that you will be in Houston again?
Geoff Cameron: Yeah, I think so. I think there is a good possibility. We have negotiated an agreement, I think. And, I think, that it could be soon until we finalize it or what not. it was a long process, a really long process, and it’s still not like completely finished yet, but it’s been a long process and an interesting process and I’ve learned a lot. But, my focus is getting ready for preseason and getting back in shape and getting my mind set on let’s have a better season than last year.
Over the past few months, Cameron was rumored to be debating whether or not to try his chances of a move to Europe, much like Stuart Holden (Bolton Wanderers) and Ricardo Clark (Eintracht Frankfurt) did this past year. But a lack of time with the national team and possessing only an American passport are believed to have limited Cameron's European prospects.
Signing Cameron to a long-term deal would be a massive boost for the Dynamo, who are looking to rebound from their worst season to date. The 25-year-old can play inside or on the wings, and in attack or defense, and is the type of player the Dynamo can build around.
As more details of Cameron's contract negotiations are known we will share them here.
