Reina, 27, has become a key player for Liverpool since his arrival from Villarreal in 2005 and, after holding negotiations over a new deal, he expects to make an announcement shortly.

"I am really close," he said. "You will find out more in about a month or so.

"I am happy here, I think the club is happy with me, too, and I see no problem at all in signing a new deal. It is a matter of time and I will sort it out in a few weeks. We are close."

He added: "Talking to my family we believe there is no better place to be and that is why we will be here a bit longer, much longer.

"There is nothing apart from winning the league with Liverpool once which makes me feel excited. That is a dream to get through and hopefully in a short period of time we will see it come true."
