Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has revealed that he plans on honouring his contract with the club and see it out to the end despite regular links with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona, Sky Sports reports.

The La Liga champions are believed to have enquired about the Danish international’s availability during the summer transfer window, but their advances were quickly turned away by Brendan Rodgers and his coaching staff.

And Agger, who still has two-and-a-half years left to run on his current deal has insisted that he has no problem with the club putting the blocks on a move to Catalonia as he is more than happy to stay on Merseyside until his deal finally expires.

“The (Barcelona) move was up to the club,” Agger is quoted as saying by Ekstra Bladet.

“The club would not sell me. I do not know [if I will play at another club].

“Right now I have two and a half years left on my contract, and I intend to fulfil my contract.

“I’m glad [to be] at Liverpool and playing well. We have a great team, and if I can win something it will be great. Liverpool is a huge club.”

Agger joined Liverpool back in 2006 from Danish club Brondby, and he has since gone on to make 215 appearances for the club, scoring 12 goals.
