Liverpool stopper Pepe Reina has come out and denied that he will be making a move back to Spanish giants Barcelona in the summer window, and even insisted that he would be open to a new deal at Anfield.

The Spanish stopper has been heavily linked with a move back to his boyhood club as a possible replacement for Victor Valdes.

And it seemed that Liverpool were resigned to losing him, as they scoured Europe to find a top stopper that would fill the void.

However, Reina has stressed that he is happy at Anfield and has dismissed talk of a return to the Spanish Champions.

As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “I have my own contract with Liverpool for three more years, nothing has changed.

“If so, we want to make it bigger and my future is with Liverpool.

“Right now, about Barca, there are only rumours and only people talking about possibilities. There are no facts. I cannot talk further on that.”

It will come as good news to many Liverpool fans that Reina wants to stay, but the reds could still decide to cash in this summer if they need to raise funds for some of their top targets.
