Liverpool star Martin Skrtel reassures fans over his future despite contract rumours

The Slovakian has been linked with a move away from Anfield this week.

Earlier this week it was reported by The Mirror that fears were growing at Liverpool over the future of Martin Skrtel. The Slovakian is entering the final 12 months on his current contract. That saw him also being linked with a move to Inter Milan.

Now, the player himself has aimed to ease those fears. He told the official Liverpool website earlier today:

"There is always talk about my position and my future.

"Almost every single transfer window there is always talk about myself leaving Liverpool and interest from other clubs.

"But as it stands, I still have a contract with Liverpool, I have an offer from Liverpool and we'll see where we finish [with those talks].

"I am fully committed to Liverpool."

That will come as a real boost for Liverpool. The centre-back has been in great form this season.The Liverpool defensive unit has been criticised for their performances this season. But the performances of Skrtel have been one positive.

The Slovakian has excelled for both his club team and national team this term and has received plenty of praise for his performances.

Losing him in the summer would be an absolute disaster for Liverpool, considering the defensive troubles they have incurred at the back this term.

The likes of Dejan Lovren and Mamadou Sakho have not exactly been consistent operators at Anfield and Liverpool are expected to dip into the market this summer to bring in a new central defender.

Losing arguably their best one does not exactly sound like a good idea. So Skrtel's words will definitely ease fears among Liverpool fans.
