Liverpool striker Suarez: I decided long ago to stay

Luis Suarez has declared he is committed to Liverpool. In the early hours of deadline day there were suggestions that Real Madrid may launch an eleventh hour swoop for the Uruguayan striker, but he stepped in to reassure Liverpool fans he was not going anywhere.

"I still have nothing," Suarez said ahead of Uruguay's World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Colombia.

"I closed the subject a while ago. I have already taken the decision to stay at Liverpool, I have just landed and I know nothing [about new rumours].

"If I play I am the subject of people talking, if do not play it is the same. They have already put me in every team, but I have already finished with this."

Suarez did confess he would have welcomed a transfer earlier in the window, but the prospect of remaining at the Merseyside club never troubled him.

"At that moment I said that if something happens then good, but if I was staying at Liverpool I would be delighted.

"This is over for a while now."
