Suarez signs deal with Liverpool

12:04 pm on 21 December 2013

The Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez has committed his future to the English football club Liverpool by signing a new long-term contract.

The length of the deal hasn't been confirmed but Suarez told the club website that he's delighted to have agreed a new deal with Liverpool and have his future secured for the long term.

The 26-year-old has been in impressive form after a turbulent summer in which he suggested the club had reneged on an agreement to sell him if they failed to qualify for the Champions League.

The new deal is expected to make the 26-year-old striker the best-paid player in the club's history.

Surarez has scored 17 Premiership goals so far this season.

Suarez's spell at Anfield has often been controversial after he was handed two long-term bans, one for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra and last season for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic.
