Luis Suarez happy at Liverpool

By Carl Markham

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has dismissed speculation about his future by insisting he is happy at Anfield and is looking forward to many more years at the club.

In recent weeks the Uruguay international has been linked with the newly-rich French league leaders Paris Saint-Germain, while clubs in Italy have also been reportedly interested.

There has been much speculation that in the fall-out from the 25-year-old's eight-match ban for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra and the subsequent abuse he has received from opposition fans that he would be driven out of English football or, alternatively, the club would try to offload him.

However, Suarez - who has yet to complete a full season in the Barclays Premier League having joined midway through the previous campaign, has dismissed such suggestions.

"I have spoken with people at the club and they know that I want to stay and that I am enjoying myself and am very happy here," he told liverpoolfc.tv.

"No one at the club has told me that they want to try to sell me or that I will be leaving.

"I'm going to carry on playing my football here at Liverpool. "There are a good few years left on my contract and I want to carry on enjoying myself because both my family and I feel really happy here."
