Kyrgiakos exits as Kuyt commits to Liverpool

Wolfsburg have signed defender Sotirios Kyrgiakos from Liverpool on a free transfer after the Greek defender signed a two-year deal.

Kyrgiakos was impressed by Wolfsburg's Bundesliga title success in the 2008/09 campaign and he is fit, ready and eager to impress under manager Felix Magath.

"Wolfsburg are a good club," he said.

"I'm here to play -- if possible in every game. I'm fit, but the coach decides when and if I get to play."

Meanwhile, Dirk Kuyt (pictured) has pledged his future to Liverpool after his agent revealed that Inter Milan had made an approach for the Dutch international.

"I am very happy at Liverpool," he said. "I didn't extend my contract for two years three months ago for nothing. You don't do that if you have the intention to go away quickly."

The 31-year-old knows the Reds have a vast squad and accepts he will not always be starting under Kenny Dalglish. "Liverpool has a very big squad and therefore you could sometimes be on the bench," he continued.
