Rodgers confirms Liverpool will sign up one of games best

Liverpool star Seven Gerrard will sign a new contract at Anfield in the summer to keep him at the club beyond 2015.

The Liverpool legend has been impressive this season and has helped his side turn into one of the most dangerous sides in the Premier League.

However, his contract runs out next summer and reports linked him with a big time move away from Anfield.

But reports have claimed he will get an improved £220,000-a-week contract to end his playing days with Liverpool

As quoted on the Daily Mail website, boss Brendan Rodgers 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.

“Most clubs, especially bigger clubs, recognize now that once a player gets over a certain age you have to look at a contract’s duration. But for me Steven still has so much to offer and I really want him beside me here working on the field.”
