McCoist alludes to potential Stoke City move for Edu

Maurice Edu and Geoff Cameron teamed together in central defense to do their part in the U.S. men's national team's first-ever win on Mexican soil last week. It appears as if the two may be joining forces much more frequently for the foreseeable future.

According to Rangers manager Ally McCoist, Edu's representation alerted him to a potential transfer to Stoke City, a move that would facilitate his transfer out of the fourth-tier Scottish club and into the English Premier League where he would be teammates with Cameron.

"We hear from his agent that there is a potential deal to be done with Stoke," McCoist told BBC Scotland.

On Monday, McCoist said that League Championship side Ipswich Town had submitted an offer for Edu. While a move to the Premier League would undoubtedly be a step up from that, it remains to be seen where he would fit in with Stoke, which currently has Honduran international Wilson Palacios, Glenn Whelan and Dean Whitehead entrenched as central midfielders.
