Liverpool's Dutch forward Dirk Kuyt has pledged his future to the Anfield club, having been linked with a move away from Merseyside this summer. The versatile 28-year-old was a target for German club Hamburg, but Kuyt says he is happy and settled with the Reds and is looking forward to the new season. He told the club's official website: "I'm really happy at Liverpool and I want to stay here for as long as the club wants me. "I am really settled here and I like the city. The most important thing is I like the club and I've really enjoyed the two seasons I've been here. "The only thing I am missing is some trophies and hopefully that will come in the next year. I've never had any intentions of leaving this club. "Sometimes things are said in the press, but the boss said to me that that is not relevant and he wants me here with Liverpool." Kuyt joined the Reds for £9million from Feyenoord in the summer of 2006 and has gone on to score 25 goals in 96 appearances for Rafa Benitez's side.
