Daniel Agger has signed a new long-term contract at Liverpool, gushing "it means everything" to him.

The Danish defender, 27, was the subject of interest from Manchester City during the summer transfer window but has given the Reds a boost by committing his future to the Anfield club.

Agger told Liverpoolfc.com: "It means everything to me. This is where I want to be and I'm happy the club want me. I am really happy right now. I've never wanted to go anywhere else.

"I feel I am a part of this club - and I want to be a part of this club in the future.

"The support from the fans has been unbelievable. The game when they were singing all the songs about me, it was difficult to focus on the game! It was such a good experience for me and I'd never experienced anything like it before.
