On Monday night, both Aston Villa and AC Milan confirmed on their social media accounts, that Pepe Reina has completed a move to the Birmingham side.

Aston Villa confirmed the news on their social page, stating that Pepe Reina is on loan from AC Milan until the end of the season.

The deal is a six-month deal, one which the Birmingham club will be hoping is enough to help them escape relegation from the Premier League.

The experienced keeper has played in the Premier League before, after playing for Liverpool for some time and has also played for Spain, where he has earned 36 caps.

Dean Smith, the team's manager, is said to be delighted with the move, saying that he has a "wealth of Premier League experience".

He went on to say that "Pepe fits our criteria not just because of his experience but also because of his leadership qualities.”
