Martin Skrtel to sign contract extension

Slovenian international, Martin Skrtel, has agreed to sign a contract extension with Liverpool thus ending weeks of speculation that he would be leaving Anfield. The defender is currently on holiday but upon his return, will put pen to paper on what is believed to be a long term deal.

Despite the clubs failings in recent seasons, the Slovenian has been an integral part of the club regardless of the managerial changes the club has experienced in the past few years or so.

And although Italian Serie A side Internazionale were really interested in signing him, the player’s agent has ended speculation by talking on his client’s behalf.

Skrtel’s agent, Karol Csonto said: ‘I confess that there were not mere rumours, the interest from Inter was real. The deal did not go ahead, but there was contact made. He had been thinking about his future and eventually opted to remain at Liverpool.’
