England midfielder ready to put pen to paper on new deal.
Liverpool have been boosted by the news that Steven Gerrard is ready to sign a new contract at the club according to The Daily Mail.
The England star is currently set to enter the final twelve months of his current deal which had prompted speculation that he might look to move elsewhere, or even retire, at the end of his contract.
Gerrard has moved to pour cold water on those suggestions now though after it was revealed that talks are already underway for him to sign a new contract.
Gerrard, who plays after Olympiakos next month to celebrate his glittering Anfield career, has insisted that there was never any question of him moving elsewhere.
After the club’s recent friendly victory against Preston, Gerrard revealed that it was ‘only a matter of time’ before a new was agreed.
The news is certain to be welcomed by Liverpool fans who have had to endure the speculation surrounding the Luis Suarez transfer saga in recent weeks.
Liverpool fans will be hoping that Gerrard’s renewed commitment might persuade Suarez to extend his stay with the club.
Arsenal are thought to be ready to test Liverpool’s resolve by preparing a £35 million for the Uruguay striker while Real Madrid are still yet to make their move.
