Atlanta United today announced it has agreed to transfer goalkeeper Vicente Reyes to Norwich City F.C. of the English Championship, pending a physical and the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC).
“A member of our inaugural Academy class, Vicente followed the club’s player pathway to earn a professional contract and has served the club well during his time here,” Atlanta United Vice President and Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra said. “Ultimately, this was a situation where an opportunity arose that made sense for both parties to accept the transfer. We wish him the best of luck at Norwich and in his future endeavors.”
Reyes joined Atlanta United’s Academy in 2016 as part of the inaugural U-13 team and later signed a professional contract with Atlanta United 2 on Jan. 7, 2022. He made a combined 31 appearances for ATL UTD 2 from 2020-2023, earning his professional debut on Sept. 3, 2020, against Philadelphia Union II in USL Championship. The 19-year-old goalkeeper has started nine matches for ATL UTD 2 this season in MLS NEXT Pro and recorded four clean sheets. Reyes represents Chile at the international level and has made nine appearances with the U-20 squad.
