The England international is apparently happy with assurances he has received that Brendan Rodgers will stay as manager of the side for the foreseeable future. The youngster is supposedly very close to his manager, who has turned him from an unfulfilled talent to one of the most promising players in Europe.

The Northern Irishman even allowed him a mid-season holiday to Jamaica on the weekend, despite having a match against Sunderland to play. This was meant to give the player some rest and recuperation going in to the second half of the campaign.

This is good news for fans of the Anfield based team, as the winger had been attracting the interest of Real Madrid in recent times. With the player stalling over a new deal and the Reds failing to live up to expectations in the league, some thought that the 20-year-old may leave the club.
