The Mali midfielder, 22, had been linked with a summer move away from Anfield but has joined captain Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Xabi Alonso and Jose Reina in penning a long-term deal.
After signing the paperwork that will tie him to the club until 2011, Sissoko told the club´s official website, www.liverpoolfc.tv: "It was never in my thoughts to leave Liverpool. I read about the speculation linking me with other clubs but I am already at a big big club and it´s an honour for me to be able to call myself a Liverpool player."
