Brek Shea, who earlier this week scored for Stoke City’s reserves in a 2-1 loss against Burnley, claims he is ready to make his English Premier League debut for the Potters in the club’s next game against Fulham on Feb 23. The former FC Dallas midfielder says he has recovered from the foot injury that kept him out of action for the last four months, although he is not yet 100 percent.

"As a player, I guess I am always going to say I am ready because I am itching to get out there and play for the football club," Shea told Stoke’s official Web Site. "But at the same time, you can't rush things, and [coach Tony Pulis] and his staff are better qualified that me to make the decision on whether they think I am ready to play or not.”

Shea, who signed with Stoke two weeks ago on transfer deadline day, added that he is settling in quickly to his new surroundings. "Everybody has been really good with me, and they have all spoken to me and made me feel unbelievably welcome from the first minute I walked through the doors here,” the 22-year-old said, noting that fellow US international Geoff Cameron has been especially helpful. "I have been around his house quite a bit and I have been eating his food, which maybe he isn't too happy about, but it's all good."
