The 20 year-old has been in contract talks for months now, and constantly looked on the verge of putting pen to paper. A deal finally seems to be close however, despite growing speculation that the pacey forward could be set for a big money move abroad.
The England international is reportedly set to sign a new five-year deal with the club, a deal which should be completed within the next week.
Merseyside boss Brendan Rodgers remained confident that Sterling would sign a new deal, and it appears now as though his confidence was warranted.
With the Jamaican-born Liverpool star’s previous contract set to expire in 2017, it was imperative the club tied him down to a new deal. He has been a shining light for the club in a season shrouded in darkness, and was attracting the attention of a number of top clubs.
