Former Liverpool star Pepe Reina is set to stay at Napoli this summer – despite interest from Newcastle.
The goalkeeper has been discussing a new deal with the Italian club as his current contract is due to expire in a year.
However, an agreement has not been reached and Newcastle have since offered the player the chance to join them this summer.
Napoli, however, do not want to let Reina leave – even though they run the risk of losing him for free in a year.
Indeed the Serie A side, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, have now made that decision final and told the 34-year-old he won’t be leaving.
Reina is still set to hold contract talks with Napoli over a new deal, but whether they are successful or not will have no bearing on his future this summer.
