Martin Skrtel has been rewarded for his good performances for Liverpool with a new contract, thought to keep him at Anfield until at least 2016.

The 27-year-old had been the subject of speculation linking him with a move to either Manchester City or Zenit St Petersburg earlier in the summer.

But the club confirmed today that Skrtel will remain a Reds player and the defender is delighted at extending his stay on Merseyside.

“I’m happy because I am a part of one of the biggest clubs in the world,” said Skrtel.

“After last season there was a lot of talk about my future but I have to say that the first priority for me was always to sign a new deal with Liverpool.

“For me it’s a great thing to play for Liverpool. I am proud to play for Liverpool with these great players – probably some of the best players in the world.

“I hope I can create history at this club and that the fans will always remember me – that’s my target for the future.”

Skrtel signed for Liverpool in 2008 from Russian side Zenit St Petersburg under former boss Rafa Benitez.
