Transfer news: Brek Shea has left Stoke to return to USA and play for Orlando City

Brek Shea has left Stoke and returned to the United States to join Major League Soccer side Orlando City.

Shea, 24, was signed by former Potters boss Tony Pulis from FC Dallas for 2.5m in January 2013 but made only five appearances for City in nearly two years at the club.

The American was loaned to Barnsley last season and returned to the Britannia Stadium earlier this month after another loan spell with Birmingham.

However, he has failed to force himself into manager Mark Hughes' plans since the Welshman took over from compatriot Pulis in May 2013.

A Stoke statement said: "Stoke City can confirm that Brek Shea has left the Britannia Stadium to join American Major League Soccer side Orlando City.

"Stoke City would like to wish Brek every success in the future."

Shea has 27 caps for the United States but did not make the squad for the World Cup in Brazil.
