Reina: Claims no transfer talks
Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has reiterated he has no intention of leaving the club.
The Spain international has been mentioned as a £20million target for Manchester United and has also been linked with Arsenal and Real Madrid.
The 28-year-old signed a new six-year deal only last season and has seen Liverpool struggle under new boss Roy Hodgson this term.
But the former Villarreal keeper claims he is committed to seeing out his contract, which would take him to 11 years at Anfield.
"I'm tired of rumours linking me with many teams in England and abroad," he told the Daily Star.
"I am a man of my word and commitment. I will honour my contract with Liverpool.
"Stories of these offers are not true. I have not spoken to anyone - ever - and I am 100 per cent a Liverpool player."
The 2006 FA Cup is the only major honour Reina has won with Liverpool and he is determined to help bring back the glory days to Anfield after missing out on this season's Champions League.
"Since I've been here I've found an incredible passion, more than I thought from Spain," he added.
"Liverpool as a club is sacred, it is something special. Being Liverpool's goalkeeper is a privilege. For now, I just want to win trophies for them."
Summer signing Paul Konchesky has taken some of the flak for Liverpool's
poor form this term after failing to win over the Anfield faithful.
Hodgson returned to his former club Fulham to make a £4million raid for the 29-year-old but many Liverpool fans are not convinced he is a long-term option at left-back.
Many fans cheered as Konchesky was brought off near the end of last week's home defeat by Wolves and the two-cap England international, who had previously spent his entire career in London, admits there is nowhere to hide on Merseyside.
"It is so small up here," he said. "There are two teams and most of the people support Liverpool - so there's no hiding.
"In London, though, you have four or five good teams. You can go out there and not even think about it.
"The fans have not seen the best of me yet," added the former Charlton and West Ham defender.
"Hopefully, I can kick on in the new year. Liverpool are a big club with a great history. We must try to get the club back to where it belongs."
