Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has refused to be drawn on his long-term future at the club.
The Spain international has been linked with a move away from Anfield following their poor start to the season with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United thought to be monitoring his situation.
Reina, who signed a new six-year deal at Liverpool earlier this year, is refusing to be drawn into the ongoing debate over his future at Anfield.
Asked about the speculation regarding his future, Reina told Sky Sports News: “Well if you keep asking, I am going to ignore it.
“I said it many times – I have a contract with Liverpool, that’s all.” (Sky Sports)
Reina attempted to silence claims he would leave Anfield on November 12th, telling the Liverpool website, “I have not told the manager [Roy Hodgson] that I wish to leave in January, or at any other time. It is important our fans know this.
“I have a long-term contract at Liverpool and I am fully committed to the club.
“Our new owner met me and some of the other players last week and I was very happy with what he told me.”
If that has changed in the last few weeks, it can only be because Reina spoke just after victory over Chelsea, and since then they have lost to both Stoke and Tottenham.
However, there seems little evidence that the Spaniard has altered his stance.
Pepe Reina merely sounds irritated with the speculation, but unfortunately the more it crops up the more it will be believed.
Certainly as Sky Sports say, Arsenal and Manchester United would both be interested if he became available.
