Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has agreed a four-year extension to his current contract, which will see him remain at Anfield until at least 2014.

The 24-year old, who joined the Reds from Brondby in 2006, has played 76 times and scored six goals, including his recent long-range effort against Blackburn.

Manager Rafael Benitez told the club's official website: "Daniel is still young, but with great quality and will be a very important player for us in the years ahead."

He added: "This is extremely good news for Liverpool moving forward and demonstrates our intention to build on the progress we have already made this season.

"I'm sure there were many other clubs monitoring the situation closely, but throughout our discussions, Daniel made it clear that he wanted to stay at Liverpool and achieve success here.

"I'm delighted we've secured his future at Anfield."

Agger joins team-mates Steven Gerrard and Dirk Kuyt in committing their long-term future to the club.
