Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish expects Jose Reina to be at Liverpool for a "long, long time", despite suggestions that the goalkeeper could be interested in a move to Arsenal or Manchester United.

Reina recently spoke to a Spanish radio station about the fact that Edwin van der Sar will be retiring from United at the end of the season and reiterated his determination to win trophies and compete in the Champions League.

However, having lost Fernando Torres to Chelsea on transfer deadline day, Dalglish is determined to ensure that Reina remains at Anfield as the rejuvenation of the club continues.

"We have a fantastic goalkeeper and he will be here for a long, long time," Dalglish said. "The Champions League is what everyone here wants to get to. For us it's only been a year where we've not had it and that's what we want to get back. It should be the same for every player, we should all be aiming for that."

Meanwhile, Liverpool defender Daniel Ayala, 20, has joined Championship club Derby County on loan for the remainder of the season.
