New Liverpool deal for Gerrard

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is ready to sign a new contract to keep him at Anfield for another three years, according to The Daily Star.

The Anfield legend has one year left to run on his current contract, but following his retirement from international duty, he is in a position to prolong his club career.


Regarding Gerrard’s decision to prioritise his club over his country, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said: “I am very happy that Steven is now going to commit to Liverpool and I am sure that is something that we will look at.”


The new deal could be worth as much as £150,000 a week for the one-club man, and Rodgers appears keen to get things tied down as soon as possible. “Listen, for his own mind, I'm sure he will want it sorted out, absolutely,” said the Anfield boss. “You never want to leave players with not too long to go on their contract. It is something I am sure will get sorted.”


And even at the age of 34, Rodgers feels that Gerrard has plenty more to offer his beloved club. “He is in real good condition. I know that he can continue to play on beyond this season. I have always said that,” said Rodgers, recognising the benefit that a less packed schedule will have for the midfielder. “Now he doesn't have international football, he will have that freshness.”


Gerrard is something of a rarity in the modern game, having spent his entire career with Liverpool. He made his Reds debut late in 1998, and has gone on to make 669 appearances in all competitions. He has won two FA Cups, three League Cups, a Uefa Cup and a Champions League, although the Premier League title has constantly eluded him and his Anfield team mates.


He also served with distinction for many years as England captain, and finished his international career with 114 caps, putting him behind only David Beckham and Peter Shilton in the list of all-time England appearance makers.
