Veteran skipper to open talks over Anfield stay.
Steven Gerrard will finally open contract talks with Liverpool later this week about extending his tenure at the club beyond the end of the season, according to the Daily Star.
The Kop skipper’s current deal expires at the end of the season meaning he will be free to speak to other clubs in January.
But it is believed that the 34-year-old has had a successful meeting with manager Brendan Rodgers and will now meet with club officials to hammer out a new deal.
Both club and player are keen to sort out a speedy resolution as a number of Premier League clubs continue to monitor his situation.
And though he has already confirmed that he would not be retiring at the end of the season, he did state that it ‘would be up to Liverpool’ if he was still playing at Anfield next term.
Gerrard has played out his entire career at Liverpool, so to lose him so late in his career would come as a blow to the Anfield faithful.
