Stoke No2 Kemp eager to add Geoff Cameron to squad
Stoke are close to finalising terms for the USA international.
Kemp told The Sentinel: "We don't like to discuss players until they are our players, but we want to sign a few and we are always trying to improve.
"The way it has worked in the past is we have had to wait longer than we would have liked sometimes.
"If we can do any deals sooner rather than later that would be great."
