Liverpool to deliver Gerrard new four-year contract

Steven Gerrard is set to open new contract talks with Liverpool at the end of the season.

Steven Gerrard is set to open new contract talks with Liverpool at the end of the season.

The Guardian says the 28-year-old has two years to run on his current £110,000-a-week contract and, while talks have yet to begin on an extension, they are pencilled in for the summer when a new four-year deal is expected.

Gerrard suggested negotiations should swiftly reach resolution. The Liverpool captain has been in outstanding form playing a free role behind Fernando Torres in recent weeks, scoring in the four-goal routs of Real Madrid and United, with a hat-trick in Sunday's 5–0 demolition of Aston Villa.

He will follow Benítez in committing his future to the club, with both the long-serving Jamie Carragher and much coveted Torres also expected to agree new terms as Liverpool seek to tie their key performers to long-term deals.
