Pepe Reina has insisted his future is at Liverpool and that reports linking him with Barcelona are without foundation.

The keeper has been repeatedly linked with a move to Barcelona, with the future of current Camp Nou No. 1 Victor Valdes also in doubt.

Valdes said last week that he plans to remain at Barca for one more season before departing. During the same press conference, Valdes also talked up the qualities of Reina which again fuelled talk of a move.

Reina has repeatedly played down the prospect of leaving Liverpool for Barca and despite the continued speculation, he remains committed to the Anfield club.

"I have my contract with Liverpool for three more years and nothing has changed," Reina said. "We want to make it bigger and my future is at Liverpool right now.

"About Barca, it is only rumours and people talking about the possibilities. There are no facts and I can't talk about that."
