“For me to sign with Real Betis is a big jump in both my footballing and personal life,” Reyes said.

“I hope to live up to the expectations that they have for me.

“I consider myself a versatile player that is available to all my team mates and willing to help in all areas, with physical work and a good touch with the ball.

“My serious nature? The truth is that it is a trait that is discussed a lot, but more than to talk about it I have come to prove it on the field.”
