Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has all-but ended speculation regarding his long-term Anfield future by confirming his desire to remain at the club beyond the end of the upcoming summer transfer window.
The 30-year-old will have just a year remaining on his current deal come the end of the season and recent reports have seen the Reds centre-back linked with moves to Bundesliga side Wolfsburg and Serie A club Napoli.
However, Skrtel has indicated he is ready to sign a new deal at Liverpool by ruling out an exit in the upcoming window, while the player's agent Karol Csonto says the Slovakia international is ready to agree terms.
"I am not leaving anywhere," said Skrtel, who has made 42 club appearances this season. "Not to Wolfsburg nor to Naples."
Csonto added: "The only offer which is lying on Martin Skrtel's table right now is the extension of his contract from Liverpool. We have been working on the details, and we will be finalising it soon. It is not true that he has some offer from the German club. I don't know anything even about their interest."
Skrtel becomes the latest Liverpool player to seemingly commit his future at the club after reports emerged on 21 April that midfielder Jordan Henderson is ready to sign a new deal.
Henderson has just a year remaining on his contract but will put pen to paper on a four-year extension to keep him at Anfield until 2020, an agreement which is likely to be the precursor to being named the club's new club captain at the end of the season.
The England international has been touted as the favourite to replace the LA Galaxy-bound Steven Gerrard for the 2015-16 season and beyond, while Skrtel and Emre Can have also been linked with the armband.
