“You have this information that Ream leaves?” Fulham boss Marco Silva ends American exit speculation

By Alessandro Schiavone

Marco Silva has not ruled out that Tim Ream will still be Fulham player next season.

The Portuguese waxed lyrical about his American skipper, who has arguably been one of Fulham’s standout performers this campaign.

Ream, who joined Fulham from Bolton Wanderers in 2015, cemented his place in the club’s history after reaching the impressive milestone of 250 appearances earlier this month.

And he also played a key role in helping them to THREE consecutive promotions to the Premier League.

But Silva, who led the West Londoners back to top-flight at the first attempt, stopped short of responding if next Tuesday’s home game against Luton Town would be the 34-year-old’s ‘last’ at home for the club.

Speaking to Capital Football, he said: “You have this information that he will leave?

“Maybe he wants to surprise you.

“Don’t be worried about Tim. He’s had a fantastic season and he’s been leading by the example.”

But Silva urged his players to go up a gear if they want to finish the season as “champions”, having now lost three of their last five.

The ex-Hull City, Watford and Everton boss added: “We have been the best team in this competition and we really want to get the job done.

“Now we want to be champions and get the title. And we will fight for it.

“But for us to achieve it we have to be much better.”
