Pepe Reina

Pepe Reina has insisted he is raring to return to Liverpool following his loan to Napoli - even though some reports recently claimed he is out of Brendan Rodgers' plans.

The goalkeeper's future at Anfield has been under increasing scrutiny in recent months after Rodgers himself suggested he had no future at all in his side.

"He's already written his letter, hasn't he? He wrote a goodbye letter, didn't he? I was surprised at the letter – when you are a loan player I would expect that he should come back, but obviously Pepe made it very clear when he went to Napoli that he was looking to move," Rogers said.

However, the Liverpool boss has named him in his 33-man squad to do the pre-season US tour and the Spaniard is reportedly joining the squad today.

Questioned during an interview with Spanish radio station Onda Cero whether he expects to continue at Anfield or move away again, Reina said: "I still have two years on my contract with Liverpool."

"I was there for eight years, I love the city and the people there have treated me very well. Last year I ended up at Napoli, it went very well for me there and I grew as a player but now I'm going back to Liverpool with renew forces, ready to keep growing and raring to play (for the Reds)."

The Spaniard has a contract with the Premier League giant until 2016 and his agent also recently claimed that they are looking forward to meeting it.

"Reina will respect his contract with the English club. I am aware of the rumours circulating about the future of Reina, but I can confirm that Pepe will play at Liverpool next season," his agent said.

Reina moved to Napoli last summer following Simon Mignolet's arrival to Anfield and in recent months has been linked with a move to Barcelona and Napoli themselves.

But with the Italian giants unable to meet his €4.2m annual wages and after Barcelona signed duo Marc Andre Ter Stegen and Claudio Bravo, Reina now claims he is keen to fight with Mignolet for the number one spot at Liverpool.
