Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has dismissed talk that he was considering his future at the club.
Reports emanating from his native Brazil suggested Lucas could seek a move away from Liverpool if he is not playing on a regular basis at Anfield.
However, the Brazilian international has moved to clear up the rumours and insists he is happy at Liverpool.
"I've got three more years to go on my contract and I'm really happy here," Lucas told the club's official website. "My girlfriend is happy in Liverpool and everybody at the club is supporting me. I have never thought about leaving."
Lucas is determined to prove himself at Anfield after coming under fire from some fans this season.
The 22-year-old enjoyed arguably his best performance of the campaign as he replaced Xabi Alonso in midfield for Saturday's 4-1 success over Manchester United.
Lucas believes he is improving as a player and he is hoping to earn the trust of every Liverpool fan by establishing himself as a key player in Rafa Benitez's side.
"I think I'm improving and I have more confidence every day," added Lucas. "The team is playing well too, which also helps. Everyone is on fire - all these things help me.
"I don't think about what some of the people say. I have to concentrate on the team. Rafa always gives me a lot of confidence.
"I know some people don't trust me yet but I will try to show them my quality, and I think I've now started doing that.
"When you have games in a row you get more confidence. You get some rhythm. It is more difficult when you play just one or two games a month but I have to work hard, try to improve every day and try to get to my best level."
