Red Bulls’ Ream mulling EPL offer

A possible move from MLS to the English Premier League could be in the works for Tim Ream, the Red Bulls center back who has solidified himself in the national team picture over the past season.

A league source tells Metro New York that Ream has received a “multi-million dollar offer” from Bolton, the club team of American international Stuart Holden. Late last year, after the conclusion of the MLS season, Ream went on training stints with Premier League teams West Brom and Bolton. His performance earned interest in a possible offseason loan from both teams and the current offer from Bolton.

The source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that negotiations are ongoing with regards to a possible transfer.

Drafted in the second round of the 2010 MLS Super Draft, Ream became an instant starter with the Red Bulls and was one of the finalists for league rookie of the year honors. He parlayed that success into national team call-ups, including a recent substitute appearance with the United States in October during a friendly against Ecuador at Red Bull Arena.

He has been hailed for his passing skills and comfort on the ball.

The Red Bulls signed on Thursday right back Jonathan Borrajo, a former academy player who spent the past year playing with HamKam in Norway, perhaps in a move to shore up their backline should a deal for Ream occur. The team’s Scandinavian exploits might not be over yet, with the team poised to sign Swedish defender Markus Holgersson, a tall and powerful central defender.
