Bryan Reynolds to leave Roma on a loan

Belgian teams Anderlecht and Club Brugge, as well as English Hull City, have shown interest for the American defender.

He’s only played one minute on the current season for Mourinho’s squad.

After joining AS Roma out of Dallas on a six-month loan in last year’s January and buy him for good over the summer transfer window, Bryan Reynolds might be on the move again, as he’s played only a minute in the current season.

Reynolds has been linked mostly to teams from the Belgian league, such as Club Brugge –former New England Revolution’s winger just joined the team on a definitive transfer–, and most recently with Anderlecht. English Hull City has also asked about the American defender.

Reports suggest that people from Anderlecht are in Rome to start negotiations to acquire the fullback on a loan, but there’s nothing concrete yet. We still have to wait to hear if the youngster is going to leave on a short or long loan, if he ends up leaving.

When he first arrived to La Lupa, he wanted to establish himself as a change of pace, but since Mourinho’s arrival over the summer to Roma’s bench, he’s been sidelined for most of the season, as he only has disputed a minute in Serie A and a full game in Europa Conference League, where Roma lost by a scandalous 6-1 score against Norwegian team FK Bodø/Glimt.

Despite his lack of activity for José Mourinho’s team, Gregg Berhalter has considered the 20-year-old for a couple of friendly matches with the senior USMNT squad, as he got his debut against Northern Ireland on March.

He was also part of the squad that Berhalter called to play against Bosnia and Herzegovina on December 18, with a 1-0 win for the Stars and Stripes. He’s yet to be part of the starting XI as both of his appearances for the US National Team had been from the substitute’s bench.

His numbers before arriving to Rome

AS Roma bought Bryan Reynolds for a $8.5 million deal out of FC Dallas, where the young defender started his career. Reynolds first signed his homegrown contract with the Hoops back in 2017, and he only disputed 31 games with the senior team before being transferred to his actual team.

On his tenure with the Bulls, the Fort Worth-born started on 15 occasions, two of them during the MLS playoffs. He assisted on 6 times for the Texan team, but he’s yet to score his first goal as a professional, as he hasn’t found the net with either of his former or actual team.

How are the teams interested in him doing so far?

As both Reynolds and Roma are looking for him to gain more experience in order to be a regular for the Italian capital’s team, his loan to a less competitive league might happen in the next few days.

After 21 games disputed in the current season, Anderlecht is standing third in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League with 38 points as a result of 10 wins, eight draws and three losses.

Les Mauves are just two points behind from Club Brugge, other of the teams interested in acquiring Reynolds during the winter window transfer, who currently stand as second place with 40 points.

On the other hand, Hull City, the other team linked to the American defender, is standing 19 in the EFL Championship –tier II league of English soccer–. After 24 games, the Tigers have 23 points after winning just six games, drawing five more and losing the remainder 13.
