Reports: Charlotte FC in talks to acquire USMNT defender Tim Ream

Tim Ream began his professional career in MLS and could reportedly head back for the final stages of his career.

Charlotte FC is in advanced talks with Ream over a potential move to the Eastern Conference club, multiple outlets reported Tuesday. TopBin90 first reported the talks between Ream and Charlotte FC.

The 36-year-old joined Fulham from Bolton Wanderers in 2015 and has made 312 appearances over his nine year spell with the club. Ream’s current Fulham contract is set to expire in June 2025, but an earlier move to MLS would provide the Cottagers with the opportunity to receive a transfer fee.

A calf injury last December hampered Ream’s time in Marco Silva’s starting lineup during the second half of the English Premier League campaign. The U.S. men’s national team centerback did start Fulham’s final league match of last season, a 4-2 win over Luton Town.

Ream has earned 56 caps with the USMNT to date and is in Gregg Berhalter’s June roster for upcoming friendlies vs. Colombia and Brazil.

Charlotte FC has impressed so far this MLS season, sitting fifth in the Eastern Conference with 25 points earned. Former EPL and EFL Championship manager Dean Smith took over as head coach earlier this year.
