DORTMUND, Germany (AP) — Borussia Dortmund promoted American teenager Gio Reyna to its first team Wednesday.
Dortmund signed the 17-year-old attacking midfielder from New York City FC in July. Since then he's scored eight goals in 16 games for Dortmund's under-19 team across all competitions.
Reyna is the son of former U.S. internationals Claudio Reyna and Danielle Egan Reyna.
The teenager was named to a Bundesliga matchday squad for the first time in December, when he was an unused substitute in a 5-0 win over Fortuna Düsseldorf.
