Napoli take Reina on loan

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has agreed a deal to join Napoli on a season-long loan, the Mail Online understands.

The Spain international’s future had been uncertain following Belgium international Simon Mignolet’s arrival on Merseyside.

The former Barcelona man was one of the highest earners at Liverpool, with weekly wages of £110,000 – a fee considered too large for somebody who could well be a substitute next season by manager Brendan Rodgers.

Napoli boss Rafa Benitez took Reina to Anfield 2005, and the 30 year old has only missed a handful of league appearances in his eight years at the club.

He won the FA Cup in his first season in England, adding the League Cup in 2012, while he also kept seven clean sheets on route to the 2007 Champions League final, which Liverpool lost to AC Milan.

At international level, he was part of the squads that won the 2008 and 2012 European Championships, and the World Cup in 2010.
