Cape Town - Liverpool defender Kolo Toure has not given up hope of signing a new deal at Anfield, despite having not received an offer yet.

Toure's contract will expire at the end of the season but the Ivory Coast international is confident that his current form and his popularity with the club's fans will be enough to seal him a new deal.

"I am a fighter. What's important is what's happening for me right now. I'm in the team at the moment and I am showing every game that I'm still here," he told the Mirror.

"It doesn't matter what other people say, I have this smile, I'm very happy and I always give 100% for this club. This club is amazing. The fans love me.

"If I keep performing that will force people to change their minds. Sometimes you can make people change their minds by performing well and that's my challenge right now."

The 34-year-old has only made four Premier League starts this season, coming off the bench a further four times, but believes he has done enough with his limited game time to prove his value to the club.

"I can show people by my games that I'm still a top player. That's all I can do and I will fight until the end. I will enjoy every second at Liverpool," Toure added.

"I've not had any offers for next season yet, and I've not been told anything. If I keep playing like I am at the moment then I'm sure doors will open."
