Liverpool centre-back Daniel Agger has taken to Twitter to deny any rumours linking him with a move away from Liverpool and is adamant he will be in back in the team soon.

"Please stop all the tweets about me leaving!" Agger said.

"I'm not going anywhere! Will be back in the team soon. Y.N.W.A (You'll Never Walk Alone)."

The Danish defender, promoted to vice-captain after Jamie Carragher's retirement this summer, was linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer, and fuelled speculation over a move when he said he 'could leave' the club after losing his place in Brendan Rodgers' starting line-up.

Agger previously told Danish TV3: 'If I don't play, and if the manager doesn't think I am good enough, that could make me leave Liverpool. 'I'm here to play football, nothing else. So if I don't play football, then I don't want to be here anymore."

Agger, whose place in starting line-up seemed secure before the season started, has found himself unable to force his way back into the team lately after Rodgers new look three-man defence has excelled in the Dane's absence.

Summer recruits Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho, as well as the rejuvenated Martin Skrtel, who looked on the way to Napoli a couple of months ago, have produced some excellent displays lately to propel Liverpool to third in the Premier League, just two points behind leaders Arsenal.

As things stand it is unlikely Rodgers will change his backline.

The Liverpool boss told The Daily Mail after their weekend win: "I thought Skrtel was brilliant (in the 4-1 win over) West Brom. I think the three at the back allows him to play to his strengths. It allows him to defend, and it simplifies his game when we have the ball.

"That (Agger is on the bench) sums up how well Martin is playing. He's been outstanding."

Liverpool are next in action on Saturday, when they travel to the Emirates Stadium to face table-toppers Arsenal.
