Stoke City and United States international defender Geoff Cameron is headed to Championship side Queens Park Rangers on loan, a source with knowledge of the deal has confirmed to ESPNFC.

NBCSports.com was the first to report the news, adding that the loan will last through January.

Following Stoke's relegation from the Premier League last season, Cameron stated his desire to move away from the Potters and he has been left out of manager Gary Rowett's plans this season.

Now Cameron is headed to London where he will bolster a QPR side that is currently third from bottom with three points from five matches. QPR also have the worst defensive record in the league, having conceded 13 goals.

After starting his professional career with the Houston Dynamo, Cameron moved to Stoke prior to the start of the 2012-13 campaign. He proved to be a versatile performer, playing in both defence and midfield, and went on to make 186 appearances scoring two goals.

At international level, Cameron has made 55 appearances for the U.S., scoring four goals.

He was part of the U.S. side that played in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
