After a poor start to the season that saw Roy Hodgson relieved of his duties, Liverpool are mounting a surge and Kuyt has played a key part in their revival.

The Dutchman has thrived on the responsibility of playing a prominent role in the absence of the injured Steven Gerrard and has weighed in with some key goals.

The January arrivals of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez have raised expectation and Kuyt feels the signs for the future are positive.

"Liverpool is a club that should be playing for trophies and I guarantee that will be happening soon," he said. "With Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll arriving we have become stronger and I have a strong suspicion that the club will reinforce again in the summer.

"This helps my belief that we will be playing for trophies again next season. I want to stay because the club is showing ambition, the team is getting stronger and my family and I absolutely love it here."
