Pepe Reina has joined Aston Villa on for the next few months.
The deal has been in the works for a couple of weeks but only today the official stamp arrived: Reina leaves Milan to go back to the Premier League, as he is in search of more playing time.
Reina arrived in Milan in the summer of 2018 but never really played too much due to the presence of Donnarumma.
“Milan announces that goalkeeper José Manuel Reina will join Aston Villa on a 6-month loan until the end of the current season. The Club thanks Pepe for his commitment to the Club in the past two seasons and wishes best of luck for the next months to come,” a statement reads.
Despite being a 37-year-old bench player, Reina was one of the top earners at Milan. His exit will allow the club to save some wages, even though his contract only runs out in 2021.
