Diego Reyes is still without a team. While Reyes has been the subject of rumors linking him to several clubs, the latest one to lose interest in the 25-year-old is Fenerbahce. The Mexican center back became a free agent after FC Porto declined to offer him a new contract back in May.

According to various reports from the past few weeks, manager Phillip Cocu was highly interested in Reyes, but injury worries were the main reason the Turkish club decided to back down. Reyes missed the 2018 World Cup due to a hamstring injury.

For his part, Reyes doesn’t seem to be taking his free agency very seriously. He was previously seen taking advantage of Club America’s training facilities, but since has been partying up at music festivals and posting videos on social media. Hardly what you’d expect to see from a player who is desperate to find a new team.

Among other teams rumored to be interested in Reyes include the Premier League’s Newcastle United.
