Ian Ayre insists Liverpool will not engage in fresh contract talks with Luis Suarez until the end of the campaign.

The Uruguayan expressed his desire to leave Anfield in search of Champions League football over the summer, with clubs like Arsenal and Real Madrid showing interest.

The 26-year-old has returned from his 10 match ban in form, scoring three times in just two Premier League games for the Reds.

Despite the claims he wanted to leave, Suarez has recently insisted he is happy to be at Anfield and hopes Liverpool can secure Champions League football this season.

The Reds are currently joint top of the Premier League with Arsenal having lost just one game in the Premier League this season.

Ayre claims Liverpool will hold contract talks on schedule with Suarez, which will be when the Uruguayan has 24 months left on his current deal.

"We deal with every player in the same way. We renew all our contracts with two years to run pretty much," Ayre said in an interview at the Asian Football Awards.

"As I've said before - when the appropriate time comes, just like everybody else, we won't treat Luis any differently.

"When the appropriate time comes, just like everybody else, we won't treat Luis any differently. We'll treat him the same as everyone and we'll have that conversation when it's the right time.

"We'll treat him the same as everyone and we'll have that conversation when it's the right time."

Despite the striker's lengthy lay-off, Ayre insists he has shown fantastic commitment every time he has pulled on the Liverpool shirt.

"As part of the group, as part of our team, as part of our squad he's a fantastic individual. He shows fantastic commitment to Liverpool every time he pulls on the shirt," said Ayre.

"I'm not surprised at all he's back and firing on all cylinders."
