Stoke new-boy Cameron: Playing in the Premier League feels pretty special

By Alex Labidou

Geoff Cameron insists he is enjoying his start to life in England with Stoke and says playing in the Premier League feels "pretty special".

The American international has become a regular presence at right-back in the Potters' starting XI since arriving from Houston Dynamo in the summer, impressing with his contribution at both ends of the pitch.

And while Cameron admits he has had to adjust to the now legendary 'cold, wet Wednesday nights in Stoke', he is adamant he is relishing the challenge of plying his trade in the Premier League.

"I think it's been a great transition so far," Cameron told

"I'm enjoying the life, the different scenery. It's definitely different from Houston where it's hot, humid and intense out there, as opposed to the nice cold weather in the Manchester and Stoke areas.

"So for me, I'm enjoying the lifestyle, the [level] of training every day. The feeling of being in the Premier League is pretty special."

Cameron, primarily a centre-back, also dismissed suggestions he is unhappy with being played out of position by Tony Pulis, insisting he is more worried about breaking into the USA starting lineup.

"Obviously, I prefer to play centre-back, but I also prefer to be on the field," he added. "For me it doesn't matter. I'm staying match fit and sharp. That's all I want to do.

"I'm working hard and staying focused. I don't think I'm a regular starter [for the U.S. national team].

"I still know I have a lot to prove and every opportunity that I'm given I need to take advantage of it. There are guys who are fighting for this position and I am as well. "
