Stoke City defender Geoff Cameron has requested a transfer from the club, reports Goal.com.

Cameron was left off the roster for the team's Premier League opener against Aston Villa last Saturday because of his request. According to the report, Cameron, also a member of the U.S. men's national team, wants to move clubs due to a desire to play defensive midfield or central defense instead of the right back position he's held since joining Stoke City in 2012 from MLS's Houston Dynamo.

A number of European clubs are reportedly interested in adding Cameron. Goal.com names such teams as Schalke, Hull City, Southampton, Sunderland and an unnamed Serie A club that finished in the top eight of the league last season.

Cameron, 29, has made 72 appearances for Stoke City the last two seasons. For the U.S. men's national team, Cameron played in central defense in three of the team's four games at this summer's FIFA World Cup.

The Premier League's summer transfer window ends Sept. 1.
