Geoff Cameron looks for 'fresh start' at QPR after loan from Stoke City

After six years in the English Premier League at Stoke City, Geoff Cameron  has joined English League Championship club Queens Park Rangers on loan in a lateral move.

Cameron is 33 but his versatility -- he played at center back and right back and in central midfield for Stoke and the U.S. national team -- made him attractive to QPR manager Steve McClaren.

“I’m extremely excited and happy to be here," Cameron told about the season-long loan. "It’s a fresh start and new beginning for me."

He played 168 games for Stoke City, which he joined in 2012 after five seasons in MLS with the Houston Dynamo. Stoke City was relegated last season, forcing it to trim its roster.

“I decided over the summer that I wanted a change and something new," he added. "The boss here has been interested in me before and I’m excited to play for him. He wanted me here which is always a big part when they believe in your ability. I want to help the team and get us up the table.

“I’m the guy that does the dirty work. I’m not the flashiest of players, I try to read the game and get the ball to the guys that can score the goals!”

QPR's next game in Saturday at Birmingham City.
