English Premier League clubs eyeing Ream

The list of MLS players possibly headed abroad for trials or training stints or something in-between in the near future may include Red Bull defender Tim Ream.

Six English Premier League teams are interested in Ream, according to outlets in England, with Bolton -- the employer of U.S. midfielder Stuart Holden -- and West Bromwich Albion most eager to secure his services or at least take a long look.

Last summer, Arsenal listed Ream as a possible target for a loan deal or other arrangement. “I guess that’s common knowledge now,’’ Ream said earlier this month of the increased Premier League interest in his services. “I think there are a few others. It’s just one of those things; you always have eyes watching you. It’s an honor to have a team of [Arsenal’s] caliber watching you, following you."

On the West Bromwich Albion team Web site, sporting director Dan Ashworth said,  "I first saw Tim during the Emirates tournament in the summer and I quite liked him, along with other Red Bulls players. We have been in discussion with New York about maybe Tim spending a few days with us."

U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann is helping arrange training stints for several U.S. players, and Ream is among them. Ream's Red Bull and U.S. teammate, Juan Agudelo, has a visit to Stuttgart lined up.

“He’s kind of setting all that up," said Ream. "He has contacts with just about every team over there. Himself and the rest of the staff, they’ve been in contact with myself, my agent and work out ways to get over there and train for the next three, four weeks. There are rumblings of possibly West Brom; nothing concrete as of yet."
