Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has responded to the recent speculation linking Raheem Sterling with a summer exit from the club by saying he expects him to see out the remaining two years of his deal, The Sun reports.

The 20-year-old’s current deal runs until the end of the 2016/17 season, but recent reports have suggested that he is already looking for a way out.
Earlier this week Sterling’s agent Aidy Ward stated that his client would not be staying even if he were offered ‘£900k a week’.
In turn, Liverpool have since responded by scrapping the proposed talks between the two scheduled for early next week at the conclusion of the Premier League season.
“Raheem has two years left on his deal and I expect him to see that two years through,” he said.
“We want to resolve the situation but it doesn’t change my approach to him. There is no problem there.
“Whatever conversation I have with a player or member of staff will remain between us.
“Ownership have shown their strength in their time here.
“When they have had to show that strength with players they have done that.”
With the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Barcelona are rumoured to be taking an interest in him, the England international will certainly have his options open to him should he decide to try and push through a move.
