Skrtel accrued one goal and 12 clean sheets on 33 appearances during his eighth Premier League season at Liverpool.

Skrtel ended up as Liverpool's most reliable defenseman after starting all 33 of the matches that he played, amassing a total of 2,970 minutes by the end of the sixth place campaign. The 30-year-old has been pushing for a new contract over the last couple of months but he and his club have been unable to reach agreeable terms. However, he still has one year left on his current deal which will bring him back to Anfield for another high-profile season.

Discussions about a new contract for Skrtel have stalled over a clause in the new agreement about the number of games the defender must play, reports the Daily Mail.

Liverpool was hopeful of completing the new deal before the end of the season, however Skrtel is not apparently ready to agree to the number of matches he must play in to earn his full salary. The new contract is thought to be a three-year deal with another 12-month option.

Skrtel has served his three-match ban for stomping on Manchester United's David de Gea during their match on March 22, and he is expected to play in Sunday's FA Cup semifinal against Aston Villa.

Skrtel has made four FA Cup starts for manager Brendan Rodgers this season and Skrtel is definitely expected to continue that trend Sunday. The 30-year-old only recorded 10 minutes on the pitch during his last FA Cup match against Blackburn, although it would be surprising if Skrtel wasn't on the pitch for the majority of the tilt against Aston Villa.

Skrtel has been suspended three games by the FA for stomping on Manchester United's David de Gea during last Sunday's match.

Fantasy owners will get a big of a break, as one of the matches Skrtel will miss in the FA Cup quarterfinal replay against Blackburn Rovers, making him eligible to return April 18 against Hull City.

Skrtel denied the FA's charge of violent conduct against him for an incident at the end of Sunday's 2-1 loss to Manchester United, reports Sky Sports.

The FA will hear the defender's appeal that contact between he and David de Gea was accidental. If found guilty Skrtel could face up to a three-match ban.

Skrtel was charged with violent conduct by the FA on Monday after he was caught on video stamping on Manchester United's goalkeeper during Sunday's match.

Skrtel has until Wednesday to respond to the charge, which could lead to a three-match ban if he does not appeal the decision.

Skrtel suffered a head injury during Sunday's FA Cup match against Blackburn Rovers and he was stretchered off the field while wearing a neck brace, but manager Brendan Rodgers said after the match that the injury is not serious.

It was a pretty scary moment with Skrtel being attended to on the ground after the incident, and while Rodgers noted that he was taken to the hospital for evaluation, he is likely not out for a considerable time.
