There have been ongoing reports that the England international was going to commit his future to the club and this will be greeted positively by the fans.
The Daily Mail reports that Sturridge has extended his stay with the Reds until 2019 and has also been rewarded for his fine form for the club since his January 2013 transfer from Chelsea.
It’s said that the 25-year-old is now the joint best paid player at the Merseyside outfit along with captain Steven Gerrard, with both players earning £150,000-a-week.
Not that this is undeserved for the Englishman as he has scored an impressive 36 goals in 52 matches in all competitions since his switch from Stamford Bridge and Sturridge is delighted to have signed.
“It feels great. It’s a big, big day in my life to commit to this club and to give the club my best years, which are ahead of me,” the forward told the club’s website.
Sturridge has been out of action since September 11 with a thigh problem picked up on international duty and Brendan Rodgers needs the attacker back soon with his side struggling for form.
