USMNT defender Tim Ream joins Fulham from Bolton
LONDON -- United States defender Tim Ream has joined English second-tier club Fulham from Bolton.
After obtaining a work permit, the 27-year-old Ream signed a four-year contract with an option to stay at the London club another season.
Ream says ''it's been a long time coming now. Over the past week and a half it's gone back and forth so I'm glad it's finally sorted.''
The former New York Red Bulls center back, who joined Bolton in 2012, made 126 appearances for the northwest English club.
Fulham plays Huddersfield on Saturday in the League Championship.
