Liverpool striker David Ngog has stated his determination to remain at Anfield this season and become a better player.
The 21-year-old scored eight times in 36 matches last season, bettering his tally of the previous campaign by two, but was asked to shoulder a huge burden with Fernando Torres out injured for long spells. His future at the club is uncertain now Roy Hodgson has taken over from Rafael Benitez and he has already been linked with West Brom.
"I know speculation is part of football and we have to deal with it. If we bring in new players, it is good for the team," he said.
"But I am a Liverpool player. I want to be involved in the first team at Liverpool.
"My confidence is good. Now I have to do my job and give my best for the team.
"I am more experienced now and I want to be involved, play as many games as I can and score goals to help the team win.
"The club had a difficult season last year but I want to prove we can get back into the top four. I am confident about this."
