Fernando Torres has insisted he is looking forward to staying at Liverpool for a long time to come.
The Spanish striker has enjoyed two successful seasons with the Reds but speculation regularly resurfaces linking him with a return to his homeland.
However, Torres maintains that he is enjoying life at Anfield and does not plan to leave in the near future.
"I have four more years on my contract and I am really happy," he told Sky Sports News.
"I don't think about going back to Spain. I don't know how I will feel in a couple or 10 years but I am really happy in England and I would like to play here for a long time."
Torres admits that he particularly likes playing alongside captain Steven Gerrard, who has found excellent form over recent weeks.
"Steven is a very important player for us in that position and makes a lot of goals," explained the 25-year-old.
Torres has shown only glimpses of his sparkling talent so far this term and there have been a couple of incidents when he has made it clear that he has disagreed with refereeing decisions.
He accepts that he has been too easily distracted at times but he is looking to remedy the problem immediately.
"These have been mistakes and I need to stay focused and forget about the referee because he is just doing his job," Torres commented.
