Luis Suarez's future at Liverpool may be up in the air, but he is hoping to end any and all speculation by signing a new deal with the club.

Plagued by controversy since joining Liverpool from Ajax in January 2011, Suarez is keen on extending his time with the Reds. The Uruguayan forward said he is happy at the club despite having been banned for eight-games for a racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.

Suarez, who still believes he was a victim in the Evra ordeal due to him being suspended despite what he called no concrete evidence, is currently contracted to stay with Liverpool until 2016.

Here are more stories from around the soccer world:

KEAN OPEN TO POSTPONING GAME VS. BOLTON

With Bolton dealing with a ton of emotions as Fabrice Muamba continues to fight for his life, Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean is open to postponing their upcoming game. Bolton's league match on Tuesday versus Aston Villa has already been postponed, and Kean said he would be willing to do the same for Saturday's match between his club and the Trotters if they ask.

ROMA TO TRAIN IN ORLANDO

RED BULLS SIGN MADURO

The New York Red Bulls have made an addition to their roster, signing midfielder Ryan Maduro on Monday.
