Nottingham Forest are in the process of tying up a loan deal with Borussia Dortmund for USA international Giovanni Reyna.

Reyna emerged as a teenage sensation at Dortmund, making his Bundesliga debut when he was just 17.

However, he has not developed in the way Dortmund imagined and was at the centre of a row between his parents and USA coach Gregg Berhalter over his training performances at the World Cup in Qatar.

The 21-year-old has started only once in the Bundesliga this season and Forest have stepped in, with coach Nuno Espirito Santo keen to bolster his squad's attacking options.

It is envisaged there will be an option to buy in the contract but that is still to be agreed.
