Reina joins Villa on loan as Begovic moves to Milan”

Aston Villa signed former Spain and Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina on loan from AC Milan until the end of the season on Monday.

The 33-year-old suffered a knee injury on 1 January.

Reina, 37, watched Villa's 6-1 home defeat against Manchester City on Saturday from the stands.

The Spaniard could make his debut in Brighton this weekend.

He told Aston Villa's official website after the transfer was completed: "We need to play disciplined, together and remain determined".

Dean Smith said: "We've managed to secure a player in Pepe who has a wealth of Premier League experience".

"At the begin of the summertime we were trying to find a knowledgeable goalkeeper and also generated Tom Heaton".

"Unfortunately, his injury has excluded him for the rest of the season, but Pepe meets our criteria not only because of his experience but also because of his leadership qualities".

Three-time Premier League Golden Glove victor Pepe Reina is coming back to England in a brand new role.

The 30-year centreback had been on loan at Serie A club Atalanta since last September but had played just six times for the Bergamo side.

A move to AC Milan followed, but Reina only presented once for the Serie A club this quarter.

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Reina, who spent eight years at Anfield as the Reds' first-choice shot-stopper, will spend the remainder of the season at Villa Park. To date, he has made 62 appearances for Bosnia, including three during the 2014 FIFA World Cup and five as captain.
