Gerrard keen to sign new Liverpool deal

4 May 2013 14:20

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has dropped his biggest hint yet that he will sign a new contract at Anfield.

Gerrard, who has played in every Premier League game for Brendan Rodgers' side this season, can equal his longest run of consecutive league starts if he features in the Merseyside derby against Everton on Sunday.

With close friend and teammate Jamie Carragher having already announced his retirement, there was some speculation that Gerrard too would look to call time on his career.

However, the 32-year-old said confirmation of his extended his stay with the club is imminent.

"They want me to extend, I want to extend, so it's just a matter of time really," he said.

"How long for I'm not too sure yet. That's under discussion at the moment. But it will get sorted one way or another in the summer."

After some inconsistent patches earlier in the season, Liverpool have begun to string some impressive performances together, including a 2-2 draw with Chelsea and a 6-0 thrashing of Newcastle in recent weeks.

Liverpool boss Rodgers said he is delighted with Gerrard's form this season and is keen to keep him at the club for the foreseeable future.

"I have been ever so pleased with Stevie this year. For me as a manager, to have a captain like that has been brilliant," said Rodgers.

"He's certainly one I would envisage to be here for a good few years yet.

"Stevie and I went out for something to eat a couple of weeks back and had a good chat about plans and whatnot.

"He is very deserving of it [a new contract]. He is a really humble man, who always puts the club first. We spoke earlier on in the season and wanted to make sure we were progressing and improving."
