U.S. international midfielder Gio Reyna is closing in on a move away from Borussia Dortmund. According to multiple reports, the Bundesliga side has already accepted several loan offers for Reyna, and it is now up to the player to choose his next destination.

French club Marseille and Premier League’s Nottingham Forest reportedly have an agreement in place with Borussia to take Reyna on loan until the end of the season with an option for a permanent transfer in the summer. Two more clubs, which remain unnamed, also reached a loan deal for Reyna.

It was previously reported that Reyna is actively looking to leave Borussia, being unhappy with the lack of playing time. The 21-year-old player played in only 10 matches in the Bundesliga in 2023-24, making one start. He also made three appearances in other competitions but failed to record a single goal or an assist.

Reyna made his professional debut with Borussia in 2020 and was billed as the club’s next big star. However, a series of injuries and a lack of consistency prevented him from achieving his full potential in Germany. He played a total of 120 games with the club, scoring 17 goals and adding 16 assists.

Despite not playing much at his club, Reyna managed to keep his place with the United States men’s national team. He scored two goals in a 4:0 win over Ghana in October and scored a goal in a 3:0 win over Trinidad & Tobago in the CONCACAF Nations League Finals in November.
