Liverpool star Daniel Agger has pledged his future to the club and hinted that he wants to stay for the long-term, according to the Metro.

The Denmark international has been linked with moves away from Anfield in recent weeks, as a result of finding himself below the likes of Kolo Toure, Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho in the pecking order.

However Agger blasted a clear statement of intent towards manager Brendan Rodgers, and claimed that he is sure he has the ability to force his way back into his plans.

"‘You need to grab the chance when it is there – that is what football is all about," Agger said.

"I know I am here and as long as I am doing everything I can to be in that team, and I feel I am good enough and the manager can use me, then I’ll be here."

The 26-year-old also took the time to state his love for the club, and his desire to remain plying his trade in Merseyside.

"I am more than capable of being in the team – I feel I belong there – but it is the manager’s decision and sometimes that is difficult to change in training," he said.

Agger's Liverpool currently sit 2nd in the Premier League table behind Arsenal, and have surprised everyone with their form so far this campaign.

Despite numerous reports linking the Dane with former boss Rafa Benitez' Napoli, it looks as though he will stay for now.
