Martin Skrtel insists he wants to stay with Liverpool.

Skrtel emphatically dismissed speculation suggesting he may leave Liverpool this summer and insisted: 'I am happy here.'

Some newspaper reports claimed the defender is considering his future - but Skrtel is adamant he wants to remain at Anfield.

He told "The only thing I can say is it is not true because I have never said anything like I want to leave the club or handed in a transfer request.

"I have a contract at Liverpool and I am happy here at the club. I haven't thought about leaving the club.

"The things that were in the press are rubbish."
