ESPN staff

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has taken to his own personal website to deny rumours linking him with a move away from the club this summer.

• Skrtel to discuss new deal

Skrtel, 27, was Liverpool's best defender last season in the eyes of many observers and had been linked with a move to Manchester City in recent weeks.

The Slovakia defender, though, has moved to quickly refute reports of any contact from other clubs and pledge his future to the Anfield side.

"In the press there have been rumours about my future," Skrtel said on his official website. "I would like to say that so far I have not received any specific offers and I have not been in talks with any club. I'm looking forward to the new season very much and believe we will be well prepared for it and it will be better than the last one."

Skrtel joined Liverpool from Zenit St Petersburg for 6.5 million in 2007, going on to make 164 appearances for the Reds over the past five years.
