On Friday evening, the speculation linking us with a season long loan move for former Liverpool stopper Pepe Reina stepped up to a new gear, and it seems we have now struck agreement with AC Milan to take him on for the remainder of the 2019/20 season.

With injuries to both Tom Heaton and Jed Steer, Orjan Nyland has stepped up well in the last few games and looks a totally different prospect to the player that arrived with us in the summer of 2018, so if the reports are true, I can only presume it means we will loan Matija Sarkic back out now, and we can also probably expect a deal to surface for Lovre Kalinic – otherwise this makes absolutely no sense to me.

37-year-old Reina should be well known to most fans from his previous spell in the Premier League but he’s only made 13 appearances since the start of the 2018 campaign and his potential arrival has certainly sparked plenty of discussion on our forum.

Whichever side of the fence you sit here, we should know on Monday as that’s when he’s apparently set for a medical and the deal should be signed. Harsh on Nyland really given his improvement, but you can’t really argue with Reina’s experience.
