Man City agree to release Reyna

Manchester City have agreed to release former United States captain Claudio Reyna from his contract.

The 33-year-old midfielder is expected to return to his homeland after three-and-a-half years at Eastlands.

He arrived from Sunderland for 2.5m in August 2003 and during his time at City made 77 starts and scored four goals.

City boss Stuart Pearce had hinted earlier in January that the player was considering making a return to the United States for family reasons.

Reyna, who signed a one-year contract in January 2006, played his final game for City in the 2-1 home defeat by Tottenham Hotspur back in December.

Last season his first-team chances were hampered when he broke an ankle and he has also been a peripheral figure during the current campaign.
