Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has called on the Anfield hierarchy to secure Daniel Agger and Dirk Kuyt on new long-term contracts.

Kuyt, the Holland striker, and Denmark defender Agger both have just 18 months to run on their current deals.

Benitez has revealed talks with Agger are at an advanced stage, but is concerned that there has been little progress with Kuyt, saying: "Agger is very close and he is talking with the club," Benitez said. There is no news yet with Kuyt but he is another player that I would like to get done as soon as possible. They have to be done before the new year."

He added: "In each team you need people with quality, that work hard and with a good character.

"I want to do it as soon as possible because it is better for them and better for the club."
