Liverpool prodigy Suso has told IBTimes UK he is not looking for a move away before the end of the transfer window – even though he has been out of the squad in the first two Premier League games and his contract will expire next summer.
The 20-year-old spent the last season on loan at Almeria where he played 35 matches in all competitions, scoring three goals and grabbing nine assists in the process.
IBTimes UK recently revealed Liverpool have handed Suso a five-year renewal deal which was immediately rejected by the Spaniard – meaning this summer will be the last chance for the Merseyside club to secure a profit for his services.
Nevertheless, when asked about his future in an interview with IBTimes UK, Suso said: "Liverpool are not likely to sell me and I do not want to leave either. What I would like is to stay here.
"In December I will be free agent but what I want is to renew here. I am very happy. I know the city and the club and I would like to stay."
The Spaniard also ruled out another loan move as with his contract expiring next summer, it wouldn't make sense for Liverpool.
"I only have one year left on my contract so I can not go out on loan", he said.
"The club have tried to renew me and I want to renew. But I have other offers too. It will depend on how things move forward this season. A player wants to play, it's what I want too. We've only played three games so let's be patient.
"I believe I've become a more complete player during my loan spell at Almeria. That was the goal when I decided to go, to improve as a player and be more ready for this season at Liverpool. "
When questioned whether he is disappointed after being left out of the squad for the two Premier League first games against Southampton and Manchester City, he said: "This year Liverpool have a very large squad.
"After spending so much money and having signed many players the competition is bigger and is more difficult to play. I did not expect to be out of the team after a good preseason but I am going to train hard to convince the manager that I can be there.
"They are technical decisions. Coaches have their opinions. There are many players, but soon we will play the Champions League and then I guess the manager will have to administer all the players."
