FRISCO (AP) - Stoke says it has reached an agreement to acquire midfielder Brek Shea from Major League Soccer’s FC Dallas.

The Premier League club said on its website Tuesday that the 22-year-old was in England, underwent a medical exam necessary to finalize the deal and attended the 2-2 tie against Wigan. Shea also must obtain a British work permit.

“I think it is close now, and we are hoping that we can get that deal done in the next day or so,” Stoke manager Tony Pulis was quoted as saying.

Shea has played for Dallas since 2008 and is recovering from November surgery on his right foot. He has no goals in 15 appearances for the U.S. national team. He would join American defender Geoff Cameron on Stoke.
