USMNT's Gio Reyna completes loan move to Nottingham Forest

Dortmund also announced that Reyna has extended his contract with the Bundesliga club through to June 30, 2026.

"He is a player who has enormous skills and in whom we still see a lot of potential," Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl said in a statement, adding that Reyna had requested the Forest move.

"We have complied with this and now wish Gio maximum sporting success for the second half of the season in England."

ESPN reported earlier this month that Reyna was determined to leave Dortmund during this window and later reported he had been offered to multiple clubs already in this window: Forest and Wolves in England, Marseille, AS Monaco and Lyon in France; Real Sociedad, Sevilla and Villarreal in Spain; and Benfica in Portugal.

Reyna has hardly played for his team this season, appearing for just 336 minutes across 13 games in all competitions.

Along with agent Jorge Mendes and father, Claudio, the United States midfielder was trying to find the best move possible, either on loan or on a permanent basis. Dortmund wanted around €15 million ($16.3 million) to transfer him, sources told ESPN.

Reyna, who joined the Bundesliga club in 2019, is under contract at Dortmund until June 2025. He has made 24 appearances for the USMNT, registering seven goals and three assists.

Forest are 16th in the Premier League under Nuno Espirito Santo.
