NEIL Lennon has vowed to get spending after Tim Ream’s move to Fulham is confirmed today.

Wanderers managed to broker an improved deal from the Cottagers for the American defender after they hijacked QPR’s attempts to sign him on Friday night.

Ream will sign for £1.75million up front, with potentially add-ons taking the deal up to £2.3million – the same fee they paid out to New York Red Bulls in 2012.

Lennon now wants to reinvest the money quickly and will sign Italian defender Francesco Pisano in the next 24 hours alongside another attacking player.

“We’ve got to add to the squad now,” he told The Bolton News.

“Fulham upped the bid from QPR and Tim made it clear he wanted to go there.

“We’ve come out of it better off and he seems to have got the move he wants.

“Now we think we can get another attacking player in by Tuesday and it’s been well documented that we’re after Pisano the right-back. That’s the plan.”

Wanderers could certainly use a boost following a demoralising 3-0 defeat at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Lennon admitted he made a mistake in switching to a back three at the Riverside but feels the system could work with different personnel.

“Preston drew 0-0 last week and we went with the same formation having watched how it went for them,” he said.

“We didn’t do anywhere near as well. There was a lack of communication and understanding about the positions being played and that comes down to me.

“Can I get it right? Of course. If it can work at Anfield, why can’t it work at other grounds?

“Maybe Josh Vela wasn’t suited to the right-back position, maybe I should have gone with Lawrie? I’ll certainly ask myself that question.

“There is a gulf in class between ourselves and Middlesbrough – but that’s not what went wrong.

“Injuries are already starting to bite a little bit but I’m not using those as an excuse. We looked lightweight against a very good side.

“It’s one for me, Johan and Garry to bank and make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

Wanderers are likely to be without Gary Madine at MK Dons after the striker pulled out of Saturday’s squad with an injury.

Zach Clough was also deemed not fit enough to start but his second-half cameo suggests he could be involved in the club’s first-ever trip to Stadium MK.
