Bolton are one step closer to sealing a deal for New York Red Bulls defender Tim Ream.

The 24-year old USA international was at the Trotters' training ground today ahead of further talks that could see a deal finalised by next week.

Ream has been linked with Bolton after training with the club late last year and it is expected that he will sign for Owen Coyle very soon.

Ream will attend tomorrow's clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford as a deal looms increasingly large.
