Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has played down rumours linking him with a January move to Real Madrid, claiming he is 'happy' at Liverpool.
The controversial Uruguayan has been in superb form since his return from his 10 match suspension for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic.
Suarez has bagged six goals in five Premier League matches including an excellent hat-trick in Liverpool's 4-1 victory over West Brom at Anfield.
Spanish giants Real Madrid are thought to have been interested in Suarez during the summer transfer window – when it looked certain Liverpool's number seven was leaving – and could make a bid in January.
But Suarez, also subject to at least two bids from Arsenal in the summer, has rejected the rumours and claims he is happy at Liverpool.
"I know nothing of any interest from Real Madrid, and I am happy with Liverpool," Suarez told Uruguayan radio station Sport 890, according to FourFourTwo.
"In the team we are all really excited, and looking forward to a good season. We have been at the top so far and we are still aiming at the top.
"We believe in the team and we believe we can have a really good season - an exciting season.
"The Premier League is the best league there is - the stadiums, the atmosphere and the fans make football here so entertaining."
Suarez made it clear in the summer that he wanted to leave the Reds and as a result, Brendan Rodgers ordered the Uruguayan to train for himself for a period.
But Suarez has said that the continuing support of his teammates and the Liverpool supporters has helped him settle at the club once more.
"When I was separated (from the squad), the players told me they didn't like that and wanted me to be with the group," he added.
"Today I feel very supported by my team-mates, and I appreciate their support.
"The support of the fans was also very important … I feel part of things at Liverpool. It is my home."
