Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has denied reports he has told manager Roy Hodgson he wants to leave the club.
Reina, 28, signed a six-year deal with the club in April and told the club’s website: “It is completely untrue.
“I have not told the manager 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.”
Reina was signed in a £6m move from Villarreal in July 2005 and has become a key member of the side having racked up more than 250 appearances for the Reds.
The Spain international has consistently been linked with a move since the summer, despite the club enjoying a new-found stability following the takeover by New England Sports Ventures [NESV].
“Our new owner [John W Henry] met me and some of the other players last week and I was very happy with what he told me,” added Reina.
“The entire squad and staff are working very hard to get us back competing at the top of the table. We will not be distracted by inaccurate media speculation.”
