Gerrard set to earn Liverpool contract extension

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is set to be handed a one-year extension to his contract which will keep him at the club until the summer of 2016, the Liverpool Echo has reported.

Steven Gerrard

Gerrard, who has played a key part in Liverpool’s title challenge this season, and was named in the PFA Team of the Year, has spent his entire career at Anfield, making his debut in 1998 and helping the club to every major trophy except the Premier League.

Having previously been used in a central midfield position or slightly further forward, in the second half of this season, he has been moved back to a holding role, allowing him more time on the ball.

And manager Brendan Rodgers, who recently described Gerrard as the ‘best controlling midfield player in Europe’, has confirmed that a new deal is in the pipeline. He said: “Steven will be one we look to get a contract to in the summer. With a year to go, it’s something we will address.

“I believe Steven will play beyond 2015. He is a player who has really shown his qualities this season. Come the summer, he will still only be 34. Looking towards the future, I still think he’s going to be a key part of our squad.

“He has dropped into a new position and played it seamlessly. His intelligence in the game is second to none. He is improving all the time. It’s one where he has been brilliant for me as a captain and as a player this season and I would like that to continue.’
