Poulsen has fallen out of favour at Liverpool and hasn't played since the 1-0 Europa League defeat to SC Braga back in March. He is expected to be offloaded in the Summer, but the midfielder insists he can still have a future with the Reds.

"Of course it's been a difficult season for me. I came under Roy Hodgson and halfway through the season he left but I have still had some good times here," he said.

"I am feeling settled here with my family. I have three kids now and we had a baby in February who was born in Liverpool.

"What I miss of course is playing more but I hope the future will be brighter for me at Liverpool.

"I have two years of my contract left so yes I think my future will be here.

"As a player you always want to play games and I'm really trying to do my best.

"We have a really good squad with a lot of good players. It's up to me to show I have the qualities.

"I have had some chances under Kenny. I think he's a really good manager.

"With the results the team have been getting you can see the club is going the right way. It's up to me to show to Kenny he should use me.

"I haven't spoken to the manager about next season yet. Let's get this season finished first and then all of that will happen.

"Of course you are always thinking about the future but I am happy here."
