FORMER England international worked with Martinez as chief scout at Swansea City and Wigan Athletic.
Reeves, born in the Hampshire town of Burley on October 20, 1957, began his playing career with local club Bournemouth. He played 63 games for the Cherries before he was sold to Norwich City for £50,000 in January 1977.
He played 133 games for the Canaries scoring 42 goals, all bar five in Division One league matches. He also won the first of two full England caps against Bulgaria in November 1979. Reeves became Norwich's first £1million sale when he joined Manchester City in March 1980.
At Maine Road, Reeves made 130 appearances for Manchester City scoring 34 times including a penalty in the 1981 FA Cup final replay defeat to Tottenham. He joined Burnley in August 1983 but was forced to retire in January 1984 with an arthritic hip injury at the tender age of 26.
Reeves worked on the coaching staff at Burnley before moving into amateur football with Boston Town, Barrow and Yeovil Town. He joined Birmingham City as youth coach under John Bond from February 1986 to May 1987. He moved to Crewe as PFA representative and spent a short spell at Stockport before teaming up with Bryan Flynn at Wrexham in November 1989 as assistant manager.
The pair's long spell at The Racecourse came to an end in September 2001 when they both left the club "by mutual consent."
The partnership was restored in September 2002 when Bryan Flynn was named Swansea's director of football with Reeves appointed as his first team coach. They succeeded in lifting the Swans off the bottom of the Third Division and signed new two year deals in May 2003.
But the pair were sacked less than a year later.
When Martinez moved from Swansea to Wigan in June 2009, he took Reeves and assistant Graeme Jones with him.
