Roma reject multiple loan offers for Bryan Reynolds


RomaPress – There has been much speculation this week surrounding the future of Roma defender and American international Bryan Reynolds.

Whispers emerged over the previous seventy-two hours that the 20 year-old could depart on loan in the coming weeks, with Alessandro Florenzi taking his place within the team.

Despite both parties wanting to split—Florenzi hasn’t received any suitable offers that would offer him a permanent exit from Roma.

So with Florenzi’s stay remaining a possibility, many theorised that Reynolds could temporarily leave the club as he would be the odd man out at the right back position.

But in spite of the uncertainty surrounding Florenzi’s future, Roma have made it clear so far this summer that they prefer to keep the young defender in the Italian capital.

Sources close to the player confirmed to RomaPress that the club has already rejected multiple loan offers this summer for the right back, including proposals from Venezia, one newly promoted Premier League side, and two Belgian clubs.

The answer, though, to all of the interested parties has been the same: ‘No.’

Since his arrival in January, the American international has adapted well to life abroad both on and off the pitch.

After initially starting slow under ex-manager Paulo Fonseca, Reynolds is appears much more comfortable so far this preseason after having a full summer to prepare for the upcoming campaign.

In addition, he also has the confidence of manager José Mourinho, who expressed to Tiago Pinto his desire for Reynolds to remain.
