Pepe Reina speaks on his future after Aston Villa loan

Spanish goalkeeper Pepe Reina has said that he is unsure regarding his future when his loan contract with Aston Villa concludes in the summer. The shot-stopper joined the Villains on a short-term loan from AC Milan during the winter transfer window after goalkeeper Tom Heaton was ruled out for the rest of the season with a serious knee injury.

Reina has since made six league appearances for the west Midlands outfit where he has yet to keep a clean sheet. While the Spaniard has stood out with his performances in a couple of games, he has also been susceptible to making mistakes, which have cost the club in the form of goals. As such, it is unclear whether the Premier League club will sign him on a permanent deal this summer and when asked about his future, Reina quipped: “The loan expires on June 30 then I have one more year with Milan. But in football you never know, do you?.”
