New York Red Bulls defender Tim Ream will train with English Premier League duo Bolton Wanderers and West Brom over the next two weeks.
Ream, 24, impressed for the Red Bulls over the 2011 MLS campaign, helping his side reach the Conference semi-finals before their defeat to eventual champions Los Angeles Galaxy.
It has now emerged that the player will train under the watchful eyes of Owen Coyle and Roy Hodgson in a bid to impress the Premier League coaches.
Ream’s agent Patrick McCabe has moved to quash rumours of a move for the player in the January transfer window, however, insisting that the United States international would only consider a move if the conditions were right.
McCabe told The Wolverhampton Express and Star: “Both clubs (Albion and Bolton) have admired Tim for some time and it affords both parties a chance to see each other up close.”
“Roy Hodgson and Owen Coyle are top managers and, above all, this will be a good opportunity for Tim’s professional development.”
“But Red Bull has maintained that Tim is an important piece of the club for next season.”
“Tim certainly is interested in moving to Europe but, at the right time and under the right conditions.”
“But he still needs to play regularly and Red Bull currently provides that.”
“As he moves toward the end of his contract, I believe that there will be some interesting options for him in Europe in the future.”
