He's a very experienced goalkeeper. Only leaving us with Nyland, Sarkic if Kalinic is leaving would have been nuts. Question is will he come in as a starter because I hope not and he has to win the shirt off Nyland who has been excellent.

Great bit of business.

If he can do half what Friedel did - it will be enough.

I almost read that as: the question is, will he come in as a striker.

Well, good luck Pepe.

We have to spend actual money on two forwards now, hurry up please.

I think this is a sensible move, Heaton is our number one but he’s out so signing an experienced keeper is the right thing to do. Whether Smith picks Reina or Nyland remains to be seen but having that experience in our squad is huge.

Seems a bit of a strange signing with Steer almost back but I guess you can't always sign players in the order that you want them.

Brilliant move as have to understand there is no premier league experienced keeper at the club.
Reina comes in with a track record and proven .
Ability wise he will be fine and has the authority and class that is good to have in squad.
A man who has been involved at highest level both internationally and at major clubs .
Its a real coup and I think was only a move down to Heaton being injured.
Basically it's wise and good football club sense in situation in to have him come in.
Welcome Reina

Hopefully Nyland continues to get a fair chance but this seems like a sensible insurance policy.
