RomaPress – The future of FC Dallas defender Bryan Reynolds remains a mystery as negotiations with interested clubs continue.

After initially opening negotiations for the defender in late-November, Roma appeared to have a clear path to signing the player on a permanent deal for the upcoming January transfer market.

The Giallorossi, though, have been unable to find an agreement with the player or with MLS throughout the previous four weeks as the club, according to a source, are more Interested in Brandon Soppy of Rennes — a target they tried to acquire in the summer.

Roma Vice President Ryan Friedkin, who returned to the United States this past Monday with club President Dan Friedkin and board member Marc Watts, met with the representatives of Reynolds on Christmas Eve in an attempt to strike a deal before he returns to Rome next week.

The parties, though, were unable to reach an agreement — in the meantime, both Brugge and Juventus agreed to contractual terms with player and are now in negotiations with Dallas and MLS.

Roma, meanwhile, haven’t relaunched their attempts at landing the player and have yet to renew contact with the player’s representatives following Thursday’s meeting.
