Agger agrees new Liverpool deal

Denmark defender Daniel Agger has signed a new contract that will keep him at Liverpool until 2014. "Daniel is still young but with great quality and will be a very important player for us in the years ahead," manager Rafa Benitez told the club's website on Saturday. "I'm sure there were many other clubs monitoring the situation closely but throughout our discussions Daniel made it clear he wanted to stay at Liverpool and achieve success here." The 24-year-old Agger, who joined from Danish club Brondby in 2006, joins captain Steven Gerrard and forward Dirk Kuyt who also recently signed long-term deals. LIVERPOOL FANS!
