Pepe Reina says he intends to see out the remaining three years of his Liverpool contract despite reports linking the goalkeeper with a transfer this summer.

The Spain international’s Reds future is currently unclear, with Brendan Rodgers linked with a move for Sunderland shot-stopper Simon Mignolet in recent weeks.

Reina, who is currently on Spain duty at the Confederations Cup, has been touted as a possible replacement for Victor Valdes, who is set to quit Barcelona next summer.

But the 30-year-old insisted he is happy at the 18-time English champions, and for now at least, plans to see out contract at the Merseyside outfit.

“My situation is clear. I have a three-year contract with Liverpool, although in football you can never tell,” Reina said.

“I’m very happy and satisfied at Liverpool, I feel valued and respected.

“Logically, if there was a chance to improve and go to a bigger club it would be a good opportunity, although there are few clubs bigger than Liverpool.”

Reina added: “In principle my plan is to continue with Liverpool.

“I have three years left on my contract and I want to fulfil that and even go further.”
