Americans Abroad: U.S. internationals playing in Europe

Tim Ream appears to be staying put. 

Bolton manager Neil Lennon has reportedly rejected the notion of the U.S. international defender being sold, with Queens Park Rangers bidding for his services. Ream was part of Jurgen Klinsmann's Gold Cup team, and he's been Bolton's Player of the Year in each of the last two seasons.

"There is interest from QPR but it is way short of the valuation of the player and we don't want to sell him anyway," Lennon said to BBC Radio Manchester. "He's been consistent, he's been player of the year here the last two years so he's not for sale."

Ream left MLS for Bolton in 2012 and is under contract with the club through 2017.

Bolton begins the long road toward potential promotion on Saturday at home against Derby County. Bolton has been mired in the second-tier Championship since being relegated at the end of the 2011-12 season.
