Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre says the club are delighted to have Luis Suarez back in action and expects to start discussions with the Uruguay forward over a new contract at the end of the season.

Ayre also gave Liverpool supporters some further encouragement when he described plans over the redevelopment of Anfield as having made "huge strides". He added: "Our ambition is to stay at Anfield, and we're about 90% down the road in securing proprieties affected by redevelopment. I'm reasonably confident, the first phase will be closer to 60,000 capacity." And he was also pleased with the way he and owners Fenway Sports Group were managing the club's operating debt and insisted that the cost of Anfield's redevelopment had also been considered. He said: "You should always be worried but it is important we manage the debt. The business is headed in a positive direction and we will announce numbers in January next year. "The business is in excellent health and moving towards a profitable position. The stadium's redevelopment is easily manageable."
