England skipper will now end his career on Merseyside.
Liverpool have received massive boost with the news that captain Steven Gerrard is on the verge of agreeing terms on a new contract that will see the midfield player end his illustrious career at Anfield, reports the Daily Mirror.
The England international skipper is a one-club man, having played his entire career with the Reds, during which time the 32-year-old has won virtually everything that there is claim in the game.
Gerrard made his Liverpool debut way back in 1998 and has since made 440 top-flight appearances for the club, while overall the player has featured in a whopping 629 matches for the Merseyside giants, scoring 159 goals in the process.
And with Gerrard’s current contract with the Reds due to expire next summer, the player has revealed that talks have already started with the club about extending that deal, although for how many years is still not known.
“The talks have started and I think it is something that will get sorted at the end of the season – it’s not a stand-off or anything like that,” said Gerrard.
“They want me to extend, I want to extend, 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 or another probably in the summer.”
