Aurelio eager for contract extension

Liverpool left-back Fabio Aurelio says he is eyeing a new contract to stay at Anfield.

The Brazilian has recently returned to action for the Reds after a bad knee injury picked up whilst on holiday over the summer.

He now says he feels very settled on Merseyside and sees Liverpool as his long-term club.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo he said, “I feel very comfortable and my family is very settled here but I know that it all depends on what the manager and the club thinks about me.

“We had started talking before the end of last season but then I picked up the injury in the summer and since then there has not been any more contact.

“I just want to play at the minute before I think about anything else and we will see how everything goes from there.”
