BREAKING NEWS: Suarez signs new Liverpool deal

The 26-year-old has hailed the “special relationship” he has with Reds fans as the main factor behind his decision to sign a long-term contract at Anfield

Luis Suarez has signed a new “long-term” contract at Liverpool.

The Uruguayan has enjoyed a sensational 2013, scoring 27 times in 25 games, while he has netted 17 times in 11 Premier League matches this season.

Goal revealed earlier this week that the Reds had opened talks with Suarez over a club-record deal worth over £130,000 a week and the 26-year-old has now put pen to paper over a new contract.

“I am delighted to have agreed a new deal with Liverpool and have my future secured for the long term,” said Suarez.

“We have some great players and the team is growing and improving all the time. I believe I can achieve the ambitions of winning trophies and playing at the very highest level with Liverpool. My aim is to help get us there as quickly as possible.”

Suarez had declared his intention to leave Anfield in the summer, with Arsenal having two bids for the forward rejected by the Reds.

However, the 26-year-old insists the “special relationship” he has with Liverpool supporters has persuaded him to stay on Merseyside.

“Without doubt the backing I have received from the Liverpool fans has influenced my decision. I am so proud to represent them and go out to do my best for them every time I pull on the shirt.

“We have a special relationship; they have love for me and in return I love them back. I will always do my best for them and hopefully we can achieve success together.”
