Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge retains hope of Raheem Sterling signing a new deal.
Sterling, who has been linked with a number of Europe’s top clubs, was one of four players at the Anfield launch of next season’s New Balance kit in front of over 1,000 fans.
And Sturridge admitted he is hoping some sort of deal can be struck.
As quoted on the Daily Mirror, Sturridge said: “I don’t know what Raheem wants to do but it is just important to be able to play regularly.
“As long as he is playing regularly he will be happy – I don’t think it is anything to with anything other than that and I hope he will stay at the club.
“It is important, regardless of who you are, to show what you can do – not just for Raheem but any young player.
“It is important to play games and gain experience so whatever decision he makes I am behind him 100 per cent.”
