Tim Ream knows comparisons with Gary Cahill are inevitable but he is determined to prove a success in his own right after moving from New York Red Bulls to Bolton.

The deal was wrapped up on Thursday after the United States international defender was granted a work permit, with Ream signing for an undisclosed fee on a three-and-a-half-year contract.

Cahill's switch to Chelsea has left big boots to fill, but Ream said: "Whenever you sell a player and bring another player in of the same position, you're going to have that comparison. People are going to say, 'he's not this, he doesn't do this as well as Gary', but you've just got to take it and roll with it."
