Pepe Reina says he doesn't want to leave Liverpool in the summer, with the keeper revealing his family are happy in the city and he feels appreciated by the club.

Reina has been the subject of constant rumours this year over a possible move to Barcelona as a replacement for the outgoing Victor Valdes.

The stopper would no doubt be tempted by the prospect of returning to his former youth club, with trophies coming naturally to the Catalan giants while Liverpool missed out on European football yet again this season.

Pepe Reina says his family are happy in Liverpool, and so is he.

But Reina insists he is indeed happy on Merseyside, and thanks to the support he's received at Liverpool over his last eight years at the club, he says he'll happily stay on next season.

"I have three more years with Liverpool," he told Spanish radio station Cadenar Ser. "I'm satisfied, comfortable and my family are very happy.

"Rumours are difficult to control but it's flattering when a club like Barca are interested in you.

"I don't know if there has been contact between the clubs or with my agent. At the moment I don't think there's anything serious.

"I don't know how long I've got left in football, what I do know is I want to enjoy what remains and feel appreciated and at Liverpool I have that."

Reina wasn't able to break into the first team at Barcelona, which led to his move to Villarreal in 2002. After three years, he sealed a deal to Liverpool, and he insists that his time in Spain taught him a lot as he quickly became the undisputed number one with the Reds.

"The years I was in Barcelona were very good, I don't have any bad feelings about not succeeding there," he explained.

"I played more than 50 games, when I was less than 20, it helped me grow a lot. I would've liked to have played there more, of course, but there's no need to over-dramatise things."
