The pair could be competing for the right-back slot next season.
"I've spoken to a few lads throughout the summer and they've mentioned what a good player he is," Reid told the WBA website. "It will be good competition for places and I'm looking forward to the season ahead.
"I was pleased with the way I finished the season and hopefully I can continue that in pre-season and be a major part of the plans under the gaffer.
"I was a bit disappointed last season that I didn't play more, especially in the run that we had when we weren't getting results.
"Hopefully I can start more league games next season and be a major influence, whether that's at right-back or slotting in for the odd game at central midfield.
"I'd just be delighted to be out there a bit more. The position I've played in most of my career, and the position I probably favour, is central midfield.
"But I can happily slot into most positions over the park.
"As long as I play the games and I'm involved, I'm not too bothered where I play."
