Shea completes transfer from FC Dallas to Stoke City

The Brek Shea transfer saga took another turn Monday night, as FC Dallas released a statment confirming the 22-year-old was traveling to Europe, but didn't specify where he was going.

"We have received interest from a number of European clubs regarding Brek Shea," the statement read. "Brek is traveling there this evening and, as a result, he will not be in attendance at training tomorrow. Currently, there is no deal in place with any club and we have no further details at this time."

Shea had been subject of a bid from Premier League side Stoke last week, but with MLS reportedly killing the deal after FCD and Stoke agreed upon a fee, it appeared that Shea would stay in MLS for the time being.

With the new development, it would appear that either Stoke has come back with an improved offer, or there is a mystery team that has swooped in. There will surely be more to come on this story in the coming days.
