Reyes has enjoyed several prolific seasons in the Albion youth ranks. 

Following two eye-catching seasons in the club's academy sides, Cleary made his first-team breakthrough during the 2022/23 season - starting up front for the Baggies in their Carabao Cup tie against Sheffield United in August 2022.

This was the first of five senior appearances over the course of the campaign, and a first goal at senior level will be high on his agenda moving forwards. In addition to making his arrival in the senior team, Cleary also received a call-up to England's U19s and made his international debut for the Young Lions during their 1-0 Euro qualifier defeat to Iceland in March 2023.

Although injury saw him miss out on the end of the 22/23 term, Reyes netted 19 goals across all competitions for the PL2 side including two hat-tricks against Middlesbrough and Derby. This form earned him a nomination for both September's PL2 Player of the Month, as well as the Player of the Year Award.

A powerful striker with an eye for goal, Cleary ended the 2020/21 campaign as Albion’s top-scorer in the U18 Premier League - bagging eight goals in 15 appearances. 

Those impressive stats aided the striker's cause in a higher age group the following season and after starting the 2021/22 campaign in great form, scoring ten goals by the start of November, Reyes seized his chance in Richard Beale's PL2 side. 

The forward produced a number of standout displays for the 23s, netting a brace during a 5-2 win against Norwich City as well as a match-winning hat-trick in the 3-2 triumph over Middlesbrough - earning him a nomination for the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for December. 

Contributions in U18s side didn't diminish during the 21/22 season, with Reyes turning Albion's FA Youth Cup opener against Rotherham around - completing a brace deep into injury time to send the young Baggies through to the fifth round in the prestigious competition. 

And Cleary shows no sign of slowing down, as he looks to become a consistent goalscoring outlet.
