Reina spent last season on loan with Serie A giants Napoli where he helped the club to achieve Champions League qualification with a third placed finish and played a key role in the club attaining the Coppa Italia.
A return to join up with ex-Kop boss Rafa Benitez has been mooted all summer.
However, Reina’s agent, Manuel Garcia Quillon, has put pay to those rumours by insisting that the Spanish international will be remaining with the Premier League side for the foreseeable future.
“I’m aware of the rumours circulating about the future of Reina,” Quillon said.
“But I can confirm that Pepe will play in Liverpool next season.
“Reina will respect his contract with the English club.”
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers brought in Sunderland stopper Simon Mignolet to take over the position from Reina last summer and had been billed as the club’s undisputed number one, though it is now thought that the two of them will battle it out for the number one jersey.
