London - Striker Luis Suarez has signed a new long-term contract at Liverpool after a blistering start to the season in which he has scored 17 goals, the Premier League club said on Friday.
The 26-year-old Uruguayan, who was linked with a move away from the club in the close season, said he was "proud" and "delighted" to extend his deal.
Suarez was embroiled in a transfer war in the past summer with Liverpool refusing to accept a bid from Arsenal for his services.
And having started the current season with a six match ban, the striker has quickly risen in the scoring charts, which has helped Liverpool into second place in the Premier League.
