Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva has agreed a new long-term contract with Liverpool.

The 26-year-old, who joined the club from Gremio in 2007, has admitted his delight at penning fresh terms with the Premier League club.

"It's another long-term contract that I have signed - but it was the same feeling as when I first came here," he told the club's official website.

"I am really delighted to have the opportunity to play for this club. It's where I think I belong and where I wanted to stay, so I am very happy and looking forward to a few more years here.

"It was an easy decision because after the long period of my career I have had here, I would like to give the best of my time to this club. It was not a difficult decision to make and I am really looking forward to what will hopefully be a few more years with a lot of success."

Lucas has made 208 appearances for the club.
