The agent of Dirk Kuyt has confirmed plans to open new contract talks at Liverpool.

Rob Jansen says the Dutch attacker is keen to extend his stay at Anfield, despite admitting being tempted by interest from Inter Milan in the summer.

"Both Dirk and Liverpool have expressed their intention to prolong their desire to remain connected to each other," Jansen said after meeting with Reds chief Damien Comolli yesterday.

"We talked about the future at Liverpool.

"He is making his fifth year and his eagerness to tackle the challenge is as large as it was in his first season. And Liverpool feel the same."
