Dirk Kuyt admits Liverpool are desperate to end their Premiership title drought next season.

He said: "The whole club is absolutely desperate to win the championship.

"If we do win the league next season, the city of Liverpool will have a month-long party in the town. It is 18-all in the titles race between us and Manchester United. The fans need us to take the lead again.

"And I have this incredible feeling that we are on the eve of another massive season with great things to come. In my trophy cabinet I only have one medal - for winning the Dutch cup. That has to change here and now - with Liverpool. I have signed a new contract until 2012 and have no intention of playing for anybody else before that time.

"I have had other offers from clubs in Europe. But this is not the time to leave a team that I have helped to build - we must finish the job."
