Liverpool are set to hand Raheem Sterling a bumper new deal. The Mirror says the Reds have also been hugely impressed with Sterling's focus and attitude off the pitch as he has concentrated on furthering his career.

He has moved an hour away from Liverpool city centre to resist any temptations and the club have been impressed with his dedication.

Sterling's £30,000-a-week deal, which expires in 2017, was signed 18 months ago and falls into line with their strict pay policy for younger players. But the club wants to reward him.
