Liverpool have received a huge boost with the news that key defender Daniel Agger has no intention whatsoever of quitting the Merseyside giants when the winter transfer window opens again for business in the new year.

The coveted Denmark international’s future at Anfield came into doubt after an interview that Agger gave to a TV station back in his homeland over the weekend.

The centre back was asked what it would take for him to leave the Reds, to which Agger replied: “First of all, if I don’t play.

“If the manager doesn’t think I’m good enough that could make me leave Liverpool. I’m here to play football, nothing else. So if I don’t play football then I don’t want to be here any more.”

The Liverpool vice-captain has barely featured under head coach Brendan Rodgers so far this season following the arrival during the summer of two new central defenders, Kolo Toure on a free transfer from Manchester City, followed by Mamadou Sakho, who joined the club for £19 million from French champions Paris Saint-Germain on transfer deadline day.

However, despite the Northern Irishman having recently switched to play three at the back, Agger has found himself to be the one defender missing out in Rodgers’s new-look back line.

But the 28-year-old, who Liverpool rejected a £14.6m offer for from Spoanish champions FC Barcelona during the summer, has since taken to Twitter to reaffirm his commitment to the club, saying: “”Please stop all the tweets about me leaving! I’m not going anywhere! Will be back in the team soon:) Y.N.W.A”
