Liverpool FC: Steven Gerrard set to pen new deal
According to the Liverpool Echo, Liverpool have opened talks with club captain Steven Gerrard over a contract-extension.
The England skipper expects to pen a new deal over the next few months, with his current contract expiring at the end of the 2013/14 season. He said:
“They want me to extend, I want to extend, so it’s just a matter of time really. How long for I’m not too sure yet. That’s under discussion at the moment. But it will get sorted one way or another in the summer.”
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has also confirmed that talks have taken place with midfielder, stating:
“Stevie and I went out for something to eat a couple of weeks back and had a good chat about plans and whatnot. I have been ever so pleased with Stevie this year. For me as a manager, to have a captain like that has been brilliant. He’s certainly one I would envisage to be here for a good few years yet.”
Liverpool fans will be hoping that their talisman in Steven Gerrard will stay at the club for the years to come having notched up 9 goals and 9 assists in England’s top-flight this season – proving yet still to be one of the best in the business, all at the ripe age of 32.
