Dirk Kuyt believes Liverpool can challenge for a Barclays Premier League title in the coming years.

The versatile Dutchman recently put pen to paper on a new deal at Anfield, and was part of the Reds' side that came close to winning the championship under Rafael Benitez back in 2008/09.

Under Kenny Dalglish, Kuyt is now confident Liverpool can turn their recent fortunes around, and with the backing of owners Fenway Sports Group become a major force in English football once again.

"I signed up (to a new contract) because I have faith in the club," said the former Feyenoord star.

"Everything I noticed shows the ambitions are high. The appointment of Steve Clarke, assistant to Mourinho at Chelsea, is one example. Just a very good on-the-pitch coach. That sort of thing."

Kuyt maintains his belief that Liverpool are still one of the biggest clubs in Europe, despite the fact that they will not participate in either the Champions League or Europa League next season.

The forward has also vowed to help the Merseysiders win trophies, and will hope to start that process next season.

"The club strives again to get to a level that suits the club. I feel that I am at one of the top clubs in Europe. The goal is still to become champions and win cups, and I will help."
