Liverpool starlet is set to finish the remainder of the season on loan in the Championship according to The Metro.
The young midfielder has enjoyed a fantastic debut season for the Anfield club but is set to be sent on loan in order to gain more first team experience.
Sterling was first team regular earlier in the season but has found himself sitting on the bench in recent games and Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is keen not to push the youngster too much too soon.
Reports are suggesting that Rodgers has offered Sterling’s services to the likes of Bolton Brighton and Cardiff City. It has also been rumoured that Sterling may be offered to Blackpool in order to provide a sweetener for a potential deal involving Tom Ince.
‘Raheem has shown he can play well at this level, but I gave him a week to get away from football mentally and physically’, said Rodgers.
‘If the young players are good enough they will be involved in the squad, but I have to look at the individual plan to see if they can be here.
‘Obviously, there might be people who aren’t playing who might want to think about going elsewhere, but at the moment it’s a strong squad.’
