Dirk Kuyt has given new Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson some good news by declaring his wish to remain at Anfield.
Kuyt is yet to speak with Rafael Benitez's replacement and will be otherwise engaged this weekend as he looks to win the World Cup with Holland.
But once the excitement of life in South Africa has died down, Kuyt will have a chat with Hodgson.
One of his first tasks will be to re-assure his new boss about his future plans.
"Of course I want to stay," said the 26-year-old. "Liverpool is a great club with a great history. Unfortunately in my four years I haven't won anything but hopefully in the future, I will still have that chance.
"We will have to see what happens but hopefully the manager wants me to stay. I spoke to people at the club and I know he wants to speak with me. But it is very difficult at the moment because we are so busy and focused on what lies ahead."
