The Brazilian has come in for special praise from boss Roy Hodgson of late after impressive performances when he has been in the side and, despite continued links to new clubs, he appears to be in no rush to move away from Anfield.
"I'm pleased to have my work recognised in this way at Liverpool," he said. "It shows that I have put in some good performances for the club.
"I'd already been voted young player of the year by fans last season. Receiving a positive response for what I do on the pitch is always rewarding.
"I'll dedicated myself to keeping things that way for Liverpool and Brazil, where things are also going well for me."
