Goalkeeper Pepe Reina acknowledges that he is unlikely to feature for Liverpool next season.

Goalkeeper Pepe Reina has revealed that he doesn't anticipate playing any part in Liverpool's first-team squad during the next campaign.

Reina has spent the year on loan in Italy with Napoli, but despite his spell with the Serie A club proving to be a success, the Spanish international doesn't think that it will earn him a permanent return to Anfield.

The 31-year-old told Cadena Ser: "Before I think about a new club, I will have to talk to Liverpool.

"I will return to being a Liverpool player but I think that I am outside of their plans."

Reina has made 394 appearances for the Merseyside outfit, but Brendan Rodgers opted to show preference for Simon Mignolet at the start of last season.
