BY foxsports • December 18, 2014

It looks like Brek Shea's rough stint abroad is officially coming to an end.

The 24-year-old U.S. national team winger is in the process of sealing a move to MLS expansion side Orlando City, according to Stoke City manager Mark Hughes.

"We envisage Brek completing his move to Orlando," Hughes said Thursday via Stoke's official Twitter account. "It hasn't been confirmed yet, but he was in the building yesterday trying to tie it up."

Shea, whose impending move to Orlando City was first reported by the Orlando Sentinel, has made just three first-team appearances for Stoke since joining the Premier League club in January 2013. The Texas native has also played 14 matches in the Championship during loan stints to Barnsley and Birmingham.

Before moving to England, Shea compiled 19 goals and 14 assists in five seasons with FC Dallas --€” finishing as an MVP finalist in 2011.
