Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has ended months of speculation by signing a new, long-term contract with the club, the Independent understands.
Reports are suggesting that the new deal runs until 2018, and that it will see the Uruguay international pocket £200,000 per week making him the highest paid player in the clubs history.
Suarez has been in scintillating form this season, scoring seventeen goals in just eleven Premier League appearances helping Brendan Rodgers’ men maintain a serious challenge at the top end of the table.
The news comes as a huge boost to the club ahead of tomorrow afternoon’s clash with Cardiff City at Anfield, where the Reds will be aiming to get three points which will take them back to the top of the Premier League.
The hosts remain without captain Steven Gerrard, who is out until January with a hamstring problem while Jose Enrique and Daniel Sturridge are also side-lined.
Striker Craig Bellamy faces a late fitness test for the visitors to see if he will be able to face his old club.
This is the first meeting between the sides since the Merseyside club won in the League Cup final, against the Bluebirds on a penalty shoot-out.
