Report: Agudelo signs Stoke pre-contract

[AMERICANS ABROAD] After playing for three MLS teams in the last 15 months, Juan Agudelo will become a free agent at the end of the year. The New England Revolution forward will be free to sign with whatever foreign club he wants, but according to Soccer by Ives, he has already made up his mind.

Sources confirmed to Soccer by Ives reports that the 20-year-old forward, who is in his fourth season in MLS, has signed a pre-contract agreement with Stoke City.

According to FIFA rules, a player can negotiate with a new club in the final six months of his existing contract. There's nothing to prevent Stoke and MLS from reaching an agreement on a transfer before the end of England's summer transfer window.

In any event, Agudelo will need a work permit, which is no certainty since he is not a regular on the national team.

He was traded from Chivas USA to New England on May 7 but played only five games for the Revs before suffering a knee sprain that has sidelined him since June 15.

Stoke has three Americans under contract: Geoff Cameron, Maurice Edu and Brek Shea.
