Stoke City Manager Mark Hughes has confirmed that Brek Shea is coming to Orlando. The Potters' skipper was quoted on the Stoke City Twitter account as saying that the U.S. international and former FC Dallas star is in the process of completing the move:

Paul Tenorio of the Orlando Sentinel wrote today that the move is expected to be completed in the next few days.

Shea, 24, would be a perfect addition to Adrian Heath's 4-2-3-1 formation, playing on the left side of Kaka and Kevin Molino in the attacking midfield.

There are still a lot of questions about this move, its exact nature, and what type of contract Shea will be under (for example, will he become the third Lions DP?).

We will continue to monitor this story as it develops.
