“I’m pleased I’ll be back available for Liverpool, both domestically and in the Champions League during September, and then England again for the next break.
“I know I can make a significant contribution over the course of a long season and that’s where my focus will remain – with so much to play for.
“Doing my best and giving everything for my team-mates, management and supporters of club and country is all that matters.”
“I’m back at Melwood now making sure my time off the pitch is as short as possible, so I’ll be supporting Gareth and the boys from up here.”
