Gerrard to sign new Liverpool contract

Steven Gerrard is to sign a new two-year contract with Liverpool, the Daily Mirror has reported, in a deal that will see the Reds captain stay at Anfield past his 35th birthday.

Gerrard turned 33 at the end of May and is due to have a testimonial this summer against Greek power Olympiakos, to be played on August 3. A one-club man, Gerrard saw long-time teammate Jamie Carragher retire at the end of last season but offers no indication he is ready to hang up his boots.

The midfielder’s current deal has a year left to run but fresh terms should be signed by the time Liverpool travel to Asia for their pre-season tour this week. Gerrard made his Liverpool debut in November 1998 as a late substitute, going on to make 13 appearances that season.

Since then Gerrard has played more than 600 times for Liverpool, scoring 159 goals, lifting the FA Cup twice, the League Cup three times and the Champions League once, among a handful of other trophies. Gerrard has also passed the 100-cap mark for England and is the current captain of the national team.
