Cape Town - Martin Skrtel and his agent have both denied suggestions that the Liverpool defender is considering offers from Wolfsburg and Napoli.

The future of the Slovakia international has been the subject of speculation this season after suffering a dip in form for Brendan Rodgers' side.

Skrtel has been linked with moves to Germany and Italy in the off-season, with reports claiming that the Wolves and Partenopei have offered him deals.

But the 30-year-old insists he remains solely focused on the Reds as they attempt to make a late push for UEFA Champions League football next term.

"I am not leaving anywhere. Not to Wolfsburg nor to Naples," he told the Liverpool Echo.

His advisor, Karol Csonto, stressed that the only contract on the table for Skrtel is from the Merseysiders, with his current deal set to expire in June 2016.

"The only offer which is lying on Martin Skrtel's table right now is the extension of his contract from Liverpool," Csonto revealed.

"We have been working on the details, and we will be finalising it soon. It is not true that he has some offer from the German club. I don't know anything even about their interest."
