Kuyt, who could have forced a move to Inter Milan last summer, is committed to the Anfield cause.
He said: "I intend to stay now. In the summer Inter came to me to find out if I wanted to move.
"The board of Liverpool took a strong attitude towards them. They did not want me to go because I was one of the five most important players for the team.''
"In my talks with the new board I feel the same kind of trust in me.
"So in return I want to show my loyalty to the club in these difficult times."
