AS Roma are delighted to confirm the signing of defender Bryan Reynolds.
Reynolds, 19, joins the Giallorossi from United States club FC Dallas on a temporary basis until 30 June 2021, for a loan fee of €100,000.
Subject to certain conditions, the overall agreement with Major League Soccer includes an obligation to make the transfer permanent for an initial fee of €6.75 million.
The deal reached also includes a number of performance-related clauses, based on the achievements of both the player and the club, that could end up being worth a total of €5.65m.
In the event of the future transfer of the player, MLS will retain the right to 15% of the profit on any deal – after factoring in the total amount already paid for the player at the time of his departure.
Subject to the transfer being made permanent, Reynolds has provisionally agreed a contract with the club that will run until 30 June 2025.
“I am excited and humbled to join AS Roma. It is a dream come true,“ Reynolds said.
“After speaking to the club, I quickly realised that this is the ideal place for me to improve and develop as a footballer.
“My challenge now is to keep improving day after day: I will work hard to achieve great things for this club.”
A product of the FC Dallas academy system, Reynolds made 29 senior appearances in MLS for the Texas side after breaking into the first team in 2019.
Following the most recent MLS season, he was named the club’s Most Valuable Player, Defensive Player of the Year and Breakout Player of the Year.
He has represented the United States at various youth levels, and was recently called up for a training camp at Under-23 level.
“We are truly delighted to be able to welcome one of the most exciting young players in US football to Roma,” said Tiago Pinto, Roma’s General Manager.
“Identifying emerging talent is one of the cornerstones of the club’s approach; Bryan’s decision to join our project is an important first step as we pursue a shared target of improvement and growth.”
Reynolds will wear the No. 19 shirt for Roma.
Welcome to the Giallorossi, Bryan!
