Cape Town - Mamadou Sakho claims he is happy at Liverpool and wants to stay put, despite being linked with a move away from Anfield in recent months.

The former Paris Saint-Germain defender insists all is well under Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and is keen for stability on Merseyside.

"I always feel well in Liverpool. When I was in France, I did not measure the real impact of this club's history. Once we set foot inside, it's fabulous," the 26-year old told RMC.

"I am someone who likes stability. It suits me perfectly."

Sakho also spoke of Klopp's influence on the squad while commenting on the potential overhaul in the off-season as the German prepares to stamp his authority and develop his own group of players.

"He's super close to his players and all club members. It is very kind," Sakho added.

"When we look, we feel it is very expressive, but as we said from the beginning, this is really not to be mean to us. Rather, it is to encourage us."
