The latest transfer news as Premier League trio Aston Villa, Wolves and Nottingham Forest battle for a £12.8m Dortmund outcast.

Along with two other Premier League teams, Aston Villa has apparently contacted Borussia Dortmund on the availability of Giovanni Reyna, an attacker for the United States national team.

Reyna was a regular throughout his first full season in Germany as he notched four goals and seven assists in 32 Bundesliga appearances. Game time has reduced ever since, though, with just 1,279 league minutes accumulated over the last two-and-a-half campaigns combined.

With 24 appearances and seven goals for the United States Men’s National Team (USMNT), Reyna is a versatile player who can play as a number 10, on either wing, or even as a deep-lying playmaker.According to ESPN, Dortmund has requested €15 million, or £12.8 million, from potential suitors.
