Unsettled Liverpool front man Luis Suarez says that he will sit down with the Merseyside giants at the end of this season to discuss the possibility of signing a new contract with the Merseyside giants, according to reports on ESPN.co.uk.

The controversial Uruguay international has only just returned to the Reds starting lineup following a ten-match ban, having been found guilty by the Football Association last April of biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic on the arm in a Premier League contest at Anfield.

However, having now served his suspension, Suarez made his long-awaited comeback for the club in last Wednesday’s Capital One Cup third-round clash with arch-rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford, although the 26-year-old’s presence in attack for the visitors was still not enough to prevent Rodgers’s side from exiting the competition following a 1-0 defeat in the north west.

But ahead of Suarez’s first Premier League appearance in five months against struggling Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Sunday afternoon, the striker has claimed that he will enter into negotiations with Liverpool over a new deal come the summer in a statement that will bring smiles to the faces of all Reds’ supporters.

“It was an unusual and difficult summer concerning the chances of Liverpool selling me,” said Suarez, whose current contract runs until June 2018.

“Some clubs sounded me out but Liverpool made a decision.

“My future? I’ll speak again at the end of the season. Now I am back and my dream is for us to improve on last season and fight for trophies. We have a good squad and have opened the season well after a difficult summer.

“I have the confidence of manager Brendan Rodgers, who was happy to let me return at a difficult place like United.”
