Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard aims to sign a new deal in the coming days.

The Daily Mail says Gerrard is set to give Liverpool a significant boost by signing a contract extension.

The Liverpool captain has entered the final year of his current deal but talks have progressed smoothly and Gerrard, whose glittering Anfield career will be celebrated with a testimonial against Olympiakos on August 3, is on the verge of putting pen to paper.
