Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has signed a new long-term deal at the club.

The 27 year old, who has less than two years to run on his old deal was heavily linked with a move to Manchester City during the summer.

However, the move never materialised, and Agger has committed his future to Liverpool on a long-term basis by signing an improve deal.

Agger is the fourth Liverpool player in recent months to commit his future.

"It means everything to me," Agger said. This is where I want to be and I'm happy the club want me. I am really happy right now. I've never wanted to go anywhere else.

"I feel I am a part of this club - and I want to be a part of this club in the future.

"I like the way it is going right now with the style we're playing, and hopefully the results will come soon as well.

"The support from the fans has been unbelievable. The game when they were singing all the songs about me, it was difficult to focus on the game! It was such a good experience for me and I'd never experienced anything like it before.

"That is why I am so happy here. That for me is Liverpool Football Club.

"I feel I belong here and as long as the manager and the owners want me, I'll be here."

Agger joined the club in the summer of 2006 and has made 177 appearances while cementing himself at the heart of the Liverpool defence alongside Martin Skrtel.

The Danish international becomes the latest player to commit his long-term future to the Anfield club in recent months, after Luis Suarez, Jonjo Shelvy and Skrtel all penned new deals.

"Daniel's contribution since joining the club in 2006 has been absolutely fantastic and his loyalty to the team is recognised by the deal he has signed today," managing director Ian Ayre said

"Daniel always made it clear he wanted to stay at Liverpool and we're delighted that he's committed his future to the club.

"We brought in some very exciting players this summer - some of whom chose Liverpool over clubs in the Champions League.

"But it's equally important to retain your most important players and the fact that Daniel has now followed Luis Suarez, Martin Skrtel and Jonjo Shelvey in signing a new contract is testament to the fact that the players believe in what we're trying to achieve here under Brendan Rodgers."

The Reds have suffered a difficult start under Rodgers, who joined the club from Swansea City, having won just one of their opening six Premier League fixtures, while they were beaten in the Europa League by Udinese on Thursday night.
