Aston Villa needed to add to their goalkeeping options after England international Tom Heaton was ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering a knee injury on 1 January.

Heaton’s understudy Jed Steer, who was first choice during the club’s promotion from the Championship, is also out through injury.

“We’ve managed to secure a player in Pepe who has a wealth of Premier League experience,” said Villa boss Dean Smith.

“At the start of the summer we were looking for an experienced goalkeeper and brought in Tom Heaton.

“Unfortunately, his injury has ruled him out for the rest of the season but Pepe fits our criteria not just because of his experience but also because of his leadership qualities.”

Reina made 394 appearances for Liverpool between 2005 and 2013 before moving to Bayern Munich after a loan spell with Italian club Napoli.

During his time at Liverpool he won the FA Cup, League Cup, FA Community Shield and the UEFA Super Cup.

He was a member of the Spanish team that won the 2010 World Cup and the European Championship in 2008 and 2012.
