Luis Suarez will be staying at Liverpool and may even extend his Kop contract according to reports in his homeland.

Martin Chaquero a high-profile journalist with GolTV Latin America has claimed that the striker told him personally that he will not be leaving Anfield.

Chaquero tweeted: "Luis Suarez confirms to me that he will not leave Liverpool. The support of the fans in recent weeks influenced his decision.

"Suarez see it as likely that he'll sign a renewal (extension) to the contract that binds him to Liverpool."

The latest revelations would bring an end to a summer of speculation that the livewire forward began by claiming he wanted to leave England.

Arsenal's well-publicised chase for the striker fell through when it emerged that a clause in the Uruguayan's contract did not in fact trigger his sale.
