Reese comes to the club following the departure of Davie Selke to FC Köln. A product of Schalke’s youth academy, Reese has previous Bundesliga experience, playing 13 games in the top division for S04.
During his time at Schalke, Reese also spent spent time on loan at Karlsruher and Greuther Fürth before joining Holstein Kiel on a permanent deal for €100k in 2020.
