Fulham defender Tim Ream has returned to first team training.

The American defender had been out for six weeks with a back injury he sustained after the pre-season friendly with Celta Vigo at Craven Cottage and hasn't featured since.

Slavisa Jokanovic had initially expected the 30-year-old to return to training after the opening day draw with Crystal Palace, but a set-back meant that he would face further weeks out injured, returning to training this week.

Ream was voted as Player of the Season last year as Fulham won promotion back to the Premier League via the play-offs, with the American being a key member of the side that went 23 games unbeaten on their way to Wembley.

His return can't come soon enough for Fulham, who have conceded the most amount of goals in the Premier League this season with 12, and Ream's return will sure up a defence that looks likely to concede goals.

They've conceded two or more goals in every game so far this season and Jokanovic has spoken about the importance of having Ream available, with the 30-year-old vital to the way the side are set up.
