WANDERERS have reportedly rejected a £1million bid from Queens Park Rangers for Player of the Year Tim Ream.

Speculation in West London suggest the Londoners are targeting the 27-year-old defender who topped the appearance charts for the Whites last season, though neither club have officially confirmed any offer.

Ream is yet to figure in pre-season after international duty with the US in the Concacaf Gold Cup but is an almost certain starter for boss Neil Lennon in Saturday's Championship opener at home to Derby County.

But ESPN FC suggest Rangers boss Chris Ramsey, whose side start their campaign at Charlton, is keen on Ream as he looks to bolster a defence weakened by the departures of Rio Ferdinand, Richard Dunne and Steve Caulker – on loan – this summer.

Ream is contracted to Wanderers until 2017 after penning a new deal 12 months ago and is a key member of Lennon's squad having made 126 appearances since joining from MLS side New York Red Bulls in January 2012.
