U.S. International Shea on Trial at Stoke City

MOST COMMENTED

Stoke City has granted FC Dallas winger Brek Shea a week-long trial at the English Premier League club. If the 22-year-old impresses, Coach Tony Pulis says that Shea, who has 15 caps for the United States, could be offered a contract at the Britannia Stadium.

"A year ago he was touted as the next great thing in America," Pulis told BBC Radio. “I think he's fallen off the rails a little bit in some respects -- I don't know why. I went to France last year to see him play for America. So we've got a chance to look at him -- he's coming over and we'll see what we think."

After a run of three EPL defeats in a row, Pulis is looking to add new blood to his squad, and while Danny Higginbotham, Michael Tonge and Maurice Edu have all left this month, there have been no new arrivals. "We always do our business at the end [of the transfer window] because we feel there are better deals to be done," Pulis said. "I think the chairman and everybody else would like to freshen it up a bit and bring in a couple of new faces."
