Christian Poulsen says he is determined to stay at Liverpool and fight for his place, despite failing to hold down a first team place this season.
The Danish international midfielder was brought in by Roy Hodgson last summer, but weak performances has made him struggle to break into the first team – although he has made 21 appearances for the Reds.
Poulsen hasn’t been in action since the Reds went out of the Europa League to Braga in March.
He has been strongly rumoured to be one of the players on Kenny Dalglish’s exit list this summer, but the 31-year-old believes there is a future for him at Anfield.
“Of course it’s been a difficult season for me,” he said. “I came under Roy Hodgson and halfway through the season he left but I have still had some good times here.
“I am feeling settled here with my family. I have three kids now and we had a baby in February who was born in Liverpool.
“What I miss of course is playing more but I hope the future will be brighter for me at Liverpool.
“I have two years of my contract left so yes I think my future will be here.”
