Anfield skipper set to extend deal.
Liverpool are readying an offer of a new contract to captain Steven Gerrard according to the Daily Star.
Given his recent average form some may be surprised that the Anfield side are considering moves to offer the 34 year old a new deal, though it is worth noting the incredible season the veteran midfielder put in last term.
No one provided more Premier League assists in 2013/14 and Gerrard also netted 13 goals to boot and therefore rumours of his demise are pretty knee-jerk to say the least.
On the subject of a new deal manager Brendan Rodgers stated;
“It is something we are looking at as a club, and with Steven and how he feels.
“He is still in a real good physical condition. He’s 34, he trains every day, he never needs a day’s rest. He wants to work.”
The fact that Gerrard has called time on his England national team career also augers well for his ability to extend his club career well into his late 30s.
