LUIZ SUAREZ has ended speculation regarding his future by signing a new long-term contract with Liverpool.

The striker had been linked with a move to Juventus, with the Italian giants reportedly planning a double swoop on the Premier League by also signing Arsenal's Robin van Persie.

But despite occasionally troubled times on Merseyside, the Uruguay international has given new Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers a boost ahead of the new season by committing himself to the Reds' cause.

Suarez, back in training at Melwood yesterday following his recent involvement in Uruguay's failed bid for Olympic gold, confirmed he could not be more content with life on Merseyside.

"To sign a new contract with Liverpool is unbelievable for me because I am so happy here at both the club and also in the city," Suarez said. "The people of Liverpool are good with me and my family."
