Bolton have signed centre-back Prince-Desir Gouano on loan from Italian side Atalanta, and have turned down a bid from QPR for defender Tim Ream.

Former France youth international Gouano, 21, started his career at Le Havre and moved to Juventus in 2011 but he failed to make an appearance.

After joining Atalanta last year he was loaned to Portuguese side Rio Ave.

Ream, 27, has been playing for the USA in the Gold Cup this summer and is contracted to Bolton until 2017.

"There is interest from QPR but it is way short of the valuation of the player and we don't want to sell him anyway," Bolton boss Neil Lennon told BBC Radio Manchester.

"He's been consistent, he's been player of the year here the last two years so he's not for sale."
