Liverpool defender Kolo Toure is close to agreeing an extension to his contract which expires next month.
The former Ivory Coast international is likely to agree a new 12-month term having wavered over whether to commit with more lucrative offers coming in from overseas.
However, the 34-year-old is keen to finish his career in England and wants to stay at Liverpool.
I think the situation will be resolved soon. We are talking. There are few things more but we will see.
Liverpool is a great club for me to stay at. Liverpool is going to be massive. I love Premier League football and I played all my years here and if I can finish here (Liverpool) it would be great.
My kids go to school here and they are half-English and that is important as well. I play for Liverpool right now and I am very happy and if it was to carry on, I'd be more than happy.

Borussia Dortmund have made their first new signing of the summer by completing a deal with Bundesliga rivals Bayer Leverkusen for Gonzalo Castro.
The Germany international has signed a four-year contract with Dortmund, who have activated a clause in the player's contract to free him one year before its scheduled conclusion for a fixed, undisclosed fee.
"I want to give myself some new stimulus in my career," said Castro to bayer04.de. "It was not an easy decision.
"I had a fantastic time here over the years and this club will always have a place in my heart."
Castro scored 25 goals in 286 games for Leverkusen, the club he joined as a 17-year-old back in 1999. He can fill the void being left by Sebastian Kehl, who is to retire this summer.

Sam Allardyce is to take an extended break from football after parting company with West Ham.
The Hammers confirmed within minutes of the final whistle in the club's final-day 2-0 Barclays Premier League defeat at Newcastle that the 60-year-old's contract would not be renewed, ending his four-year reign at Upton Park.
Asked if he planned to be back in work by August, he said: "No, I'm looking for a break well beyond that.
"Recharging your batteries - if and when you come back if you have recharged your batteries, you are much better prepared to carry on doing the job at this level of football.
"It depends whether it's a year or whether it falls around Christmas time, or whoever might fall into trouble, whatever job you fancy doing.
"It's not just a job I'm after, it's he right job if it comes along. I certainly won't be doing that in the next few weeks. You can never say never, but I can't see myself in charge of another football club for the start of next season."

"They offered me already two or three years."
