Reina has regularly discussed a possible return to Barcelona, whom he left to join Villarreal in 2002, and has also been linked with a switch to Serie A side Napoli – where he would be reunited with Rafa Benitez - and Arsenal. But his representative, Manuel Garcia Quilon, says the 30-year-old will not be going anywhere.

"Reina has been clear in recent days in his thoughts - his future is still at Liverpool," Quilon told "At the moment, there are no chances for Napoli and Barcelona.

"Pepe considers [Rafael] Benitez a great coach, but his future will still be at Anfield."

Benitez signed Reina for Liverpool in 2005, and he has since made 394 appearances for the Anfield club, winning the Champions League, the FA Cup, the League Cup and the UEFA Super Cup.
