Pepe Reina: Planning to see out his contract at Anfield

The Spain international has consistently been linked with a transfer to Barcelona, whose current stopper Victor Valdes has revealed he will not be signing a new contract when his current deal expires next year.

But Valdes has stated he plans to see out his remaining 12 months at the Nou Camp and Reina in turn has confirmed he is happy at Anfield - for now at least.

"My situation is clear. I have a three-year contract with Liverpool, although in football you can never tell," he 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.

"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."

Reina is currently on international duty with Spain at the Confederations Cup in Brazil.

But when asked directly if his time in the Premier League had come to an end, Reina insisted he was happy playing in England.

"I don't think so. Nor do I think that is a possibility," he added. "The best option for my family is for me to stick with Liverpool."

Brendan Rodgers's side have been in discussions with Sunderland over the availability of their Belgium international Simon Mignolet, although no official bid has been tabled.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
