Pepe Reina joins Aston Villa on loan

Aston Villa is pleased to announce the signing of Pepe Reina on loan from AC Milan until the end of the season.

The experienced goalkeeper enjoyed a lengthy spell with Liverpool earlier on in his career and has also represented clubs in Spain, Germany and Italy.

On the international stage, Reina has been capped 36 times by Spain and lifted the FIFA World Cup in 2010.

Dean Smith said: “We’ve managed to secure a player in Pepe who has a wealth of Premier League experience.

“At the start of the summer we were looking for an experienced goalkeeper and brought in Tom Heaton. Unfortunately, his injury has ruled him out for the rest of the season but Pepe fits our criteria not just because of his experience but also because of his leadership qualities.”
