Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is convinced Martin Skrtel is committed to the club.

Skrtel has developed into a key figure for Liverpool, but his displays for the Anfield club have caught the attention of a number of teams.

It has been claimed Manchester City are keeping an eye on developments, but Rodgers claims he held positive talks with the Slovakian over the weekend.

"I met Martin for the first time on Saturday. He is a good guy. I'm looking forward to working with him, likewise Daniel [Agger]," Rodgers said in the Daily Express.

"I had a good feeling after I spoke to him. He is very committed to the cause. He has made it very clear that he wants to be here, fighting and working to make the club better.

"These are issues that we will look to find solutions to in the coming months."
