Daniel Agger has ended speculation over his future by signing a new deal that binds him to Liverpool until 2014.

The talented central defender has been the subject of much conjecture this season, with reports suggesting he could quit Anfield at the end of the campaign.

However, after productive talks with the club's management he has now penned a four-year extension to his current contract.

The 24-year old, who joined the Reds from Brondby in 2006, has played 76 times and scored six goals, including his recent long-range effort against Blackburn.

Agger joins team-mates Steven Gerrard and Dirk Kuyt in committing his long-term future to the club.

"This is extremely good news for Liverpool moving forward and demonstrates our intention to build on the progress we have already made this season," Reds boss Rafa Benitez told the club's website.

"Daniel is still young, but with great quality and will be a very important player for us in the years ahead.

"I'm sure there were many other clubs monitoring the situation closely, but throughout our discussions, Daniel made it clear that he wanted to stay at Liverpool and achieve success here.

"I'm delighted we've secured his future at Anfield."
