Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt has signed a two-year extension to his Anfield contract, tying him to the Merseyside club until at least 2012.
The 28-year-old Holland international's current deal was due to expire at the end of next season and manager Rafael Benitez is delighted Kuyt has joined captain Steven Gerrard in committing his long-term future to Liverpool.
We all knew that there was no way Gerrard was leaving Liverpool. So, it was only a question of whether others we be resigned. Kuyt is a huge signing. He is like Park Ji Sung. Only better.
