"It is to do with family reasons, nothing sinister.

"I can understand the reasons he gave to me.

"He believes his family has to come before his professional career at this stage.

"It is a case of working out a deal agreeable to player and club."

Reyna has been troubled by injuries and has not played since December.

Pearce added: "He has been a decent player and the frustrating thing for any manager is to lose someone when you are not expecting it.

"Before he got the injury as we were approaching Christmas, Claudio was playing really well."
