Footballer Luis Suarez has signed a new four and a half year contract at Liverpool after a scorching start to the season.

He’s scored 17 goals in 11 games for the club.

Despite rumours of a possible end of season transfer, the 26-year-old Uruguayan said he was “proud” and “delighted” to extend his contract.

“I think that, after the summer, it’s a difficult time,” he said. “But they helped me for the comeback to play and I think when the supporters help you outside the pitch you try your best and … and they are happy.”

The striker’s original deal was set to expire in 2016. The new contract will see him earn nearly €240,000 per week over the next four years.

Suarez, who joined the Reds in January 2011, recently netted The Football Supporters’ Federation Player of the Year Award.
