Report: Stoke City considering making move for Fire's Accam


A number of big name MLS players have moved abroad early in the offseason, and Chicago Fire winger David Accam could be joining that group soon.

Accam has been training with Premier League team Stoke City during the MLS offseason, and now the English club may be looking into acquiring the 25-year-old, according to reports from his native Ghana and from British tabloid The Daily Mail. His training stint with Stoke has sparked some rumors of a move to England after Accam led the Fire with a team-high 10 goals in 24 appearances in 2015.

He would need to qualify for a work permit, which isn’t a given, but it would probably be hard for Accam to turn down the move if given the opportunity. England’s midseason transfer window opens in January so even if a move is in the works, it would have to wait until 2016.

Accam is currently one of the key pieces for the Fire to build around, so losing him would be a big blow to any hopes of a quick turnaround in coach Veljko Paunovic’s first year.
