Agger open to signing new Liverpool contract

The defender has established himself at Anfield since joining six years ago from Brondby and is willing to extend his existing deal and commit his long-term future to the club

Liverpool centre-back Daniel Agger has revealed that would be willing to discuss a new contract to commit his long-term future to the Reds.

The 27-year-old defender joined the club back in 2006 from Brondby, but a succession of niggling injuries hampered his chances of a consistent run in the team.

However, this past season Agger has managed to stay fully fit for the majority and therefore established himself as a regular starter last season.

And despite having two years still to run on his current contract, he is ready to listen to any offer from the club.

"It's no secret that I'm happy to be in Liverpool. Otherwise, I would not have been there for six years," Agger told

25/1 Liverpool are 25/1 with Sportingbet to win the Premier League next season.

"I have not [discussed a new contract] but if they come with an offer I will surely sit down and talk with them.

"It's not something that is urgent, for I have contract until 2014, but if they ask I will listen.”

The Denmark international also admitted he is excited at the prospect of meeting Brendan Rodgers following his appointment as Liverpool’s new manager after being impressed with the Northern Irishman’s achievements at Swansea City.

He continued: "I am looking forward to meeting the new coach. I've seen what he has done at Swansea, and it has been impressive."
