Tim Ream joined Bolton from New York Red Bulls in the 2012 January transfer window, signing a three-and-a-half contract.
Having established himself in the MLS, Ream got his first international call up in November 2010 and went on to represent the United States in the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup. To date he has eight caps for his country.
Ream was set to jet off on his honeymoon when he got the call to tell him his transfer to the Reebok Stadium had been finalised, forcing him to cancel the trip.
He made his debut in the 2-0 FA Cup victory over Millwall at the New Den on 18 February 2012 and since then he has been a virtual ever-present in the first team, making a total of 15 Wanderers appearances.
