Liverpool boss Rodgers adamant Sterling will ink new deal
After watching the frighteningly mature kid again make two of Liverpool's goals, he insisted there would be no chance of him leaving.
"The message is very simple - any club wanting to sign him would be wasting his time.
"Raheem is in a real good place here. He has been given an opportunity here this season and he is thriving on it and enjoying the work. He will tie down himself to a new contract because he wants to be here and he can be a great here at this football club.
"We are trying to move the club forward over the next couple of years and there will be a little bit of pain along the way, but there are not too many teams in the Premier League who are starting with three teenagers and he is one of our outstanding stars.
"We want him to continue to grow, and why would you want to leave one of the biggest clubs in world football? So it's a no brainer."
