Tim Ream first made his name in Major League Soccer, and apparently the U.S. Men’s National Team defender could be on his way back stateside “sooner rather than later.”

According to MSG’s Kristian Dyer, the Fulham defender is being monitored by several MLS players in the event that he does decide to return to the U.S. in the future.

Ream, who has seen a mere five minutes of action in Fulham’s five league matches to start the 2016/17 season, could reportedly return to MLS if he doesn’t receive consistent minutes moving forward with the English Championship side.

The 28-year-old was selected in the second round of 2010 MLS SuperDraft by the New York Red Bulls, and made over 65 appearances for the club across all competitions in his two seasons with the Eastern Conference side.

The veteran defender left for England ahead of the 2011/12 season after signing with Bolton Wanderers, before moving to Fulham this past campaign.
