The Ivorian’s deal is set to expire this summer, with man tipping him to finally move on after a mixed time at the club.

However, he has insisted that he is already locked in talks with the club about a deal that would see him spend another year under Brendan Rodgers.

The 34-year-old arrived at Liverpool on a free transfer from Manchester City in the summer of 2013 and has gone on to make 45 appearances for the club during that time.

He played a key role in Liverpool’s rise to second place last term, but only featured in a handful of games this time around.

And he has hinted that talks are already well underway as he is settled in the area and hopes to be able to represent the club for a little longer.

“I think the situation will be resolved soon. We are talking. There are few things more but we will see,” he said.

“Liverpool is a great club for me to stay at. Liverpool is going to be massive.

“I love Premier League football and I played all my years here and if I can finish here it would be great.

“My kids go to school here and they are half-English and that is important as well.

“I play for Liverpool right now and I am very happy and if it was to carry on, I’d be more than happy.”
