Reports: Reyna signs new contract with Borussia Dortmund

Giovanni Reyna has already had a stellar week and the 18-year-old is reportedly committing his future long-term to Borussia Dortmund.

Reyna has signed a new contract with the Bundesliga club until 2024, several reports stated Friday. The deal comes one day after Reyna made his senior debut for the U.S. Men’s National Team in a scoreless draw with Wales on Thursday.

After arriving from New York City FC in 2018, Reyna previously signed a three-year deal with the German giants. However, interest from clubs in the Premier League and La Liga forced Dortmund to lock up the youngster’s services well into the future.

Reyna made his Dortmund debut in February and has started off strong in the new campaign. In his 12 combined appearances this season for the Black and Yellow, Reyna has scored twice and contributed five assists while appearing in four different competitions.

He is one of several top young players in Lucien Favre’s squad, along with Norwegian striker Erling Haaland, and England midfielders Jude Bellingham, and Jadon Sancho.

“It’s really fun,” Reyna said this week in regards to playing with them. “I think it gives us an aspect of almost playing together as kids and to us we can kinda have a laugh about it. We have a good time here [at Dortmund] and I don’t feel any pressure because they are all good players and easy to play with. We’re just going to keep going at the moment and keep trying to win games.”

Reyna could make his second USMNT appearance on Monday in Austria with Gregg Berhalter’s side facing Concacaf rivals Panama before returning to Dortmund for a league date against Hertha Berlin.


  1. What a lively fun team to watch. t would be awesome to see Dortmund play out it’s hand- go all in on developing/growing this team and its young stars into their prime to win the Bundesliga and CL rather than the endless cycle of develop / sell, settle for 2nd place. Unfortunately, watching- in the back of your head there is the thought: enjoy it while it lastsssss… knowing that if they continue on their current trajectory- you likely won’t ever see the Haaland, Sancho, Bellingham, Reyna reach it’s full potential…. won’t be together in yellow in 4 years…quite possibly not a single one of them.

    • As good as BvB is they are not a deep pocket club that will be able to hold onto all this young attacking talent. They are able to attract these young talents by promising them real game opportunities. They’ll be lucky to hold onto Haaland, Sancho, Bellingham, & Reyna for 2 more years.
      Since clubs are already making offers for Sancho I’m guessing he’ll be the first to go, and probably in the very near future (6-12 months). BvB will re-invest that money into picking up some defensive options, and will promote a couple new names from their reserves.
