Pepe Reina's agent has said the goalkeeper will not return to Napoli on loan and plans to spend the coming season at Liverpool.
Reina spent last season with Rafa Benitez's side, making 43 appearances in all competitions, but returned to the Reds in the summer.
Napoli fans had hoped that he might return on a permanent deal, but agent Manuel Garcia Quilon told tuttonapoli.net that he intended to see out the final two years of his deal at Anfield.
"I've heard of the rumours about Reina's future, but I can confirm that Pepe is going to be playing for Liverpool next season," Quilon said. "He is going to fulfil his contract with the English club."
Benitez said last month that the Serie A club could not afford the 31-year-old Spain international's wages.
Napoli have already moved to replace him, with Mariano Andujar arriving from Catania and Roberto Colombo signing a new contract. With Rafael also fit again after injury, Benitez has three goalkeepers from which to choose next season.
