Cincinnati FC has signed veteran defender Geoff Cameron with an additional year of options until 2022, the club said on Thursday.
35-year-old Cameron, who played five seasons in the MLS with the Houston Dynamo from 2008 to 2012, has spent the last nine seasons in England with Stoke City FC (2012-19) and Queens Park Rangers (2019-21).
“We have chosen to expand our current backline and we welcome the opportunity to add Geoff Cameron to our team,” said Gerard Nijkamp, GM of Cincinnati, in a press release. “He has made a consistent contribution over nine seasons in England and we believe he will compete with our current players to earn regular minutes.”
Cameron is from Massachusetts and has played collegially in West Virginia and Rhode Island. He was an election in the third round of the 2008 MLS SuperDraft.
He appeared in 116 MLS games with Houston, scoring 11 goals and 15 assists. He received All-Star Awards in 2009 and 2011 and was named the best XI squad in 2009.
Cameron has played 55 international matches with the US men’s national team, including appearances at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
