Borussia Dortmund Signs USA Prospect Giovanni Reyna

Borussia Dortmund has agreed to sign former United States international Claudio Reyna's son, Giovanni Reyna, from New York City FC for its under-19 side.

The Bundesliga club says the 16-year-old Reyna, a midfielder, will move on a free transfer, subject to approval from FIFA as the player is still considered a minor.

Dortmund has also agreed to sign the 16-year-old Bradley Fink, a tall center forward, from FC Luzern on a free transfer for its under-17 side.

Dortmund youth coordinator Lars Ricken says Reyna is ''without doubt a huge talent,'' while Fink ''has fantastic ability and recently scored 40 goals in just 21 games for Luzern's under-16s. Numerous big clubs in Europe wanted to sign these two players.''

Dortmund is also awaiting final FIFA approval to sign Fink.
