Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling is currently playing on terms of just £300-a-week!

The Mirror says he has 18 months left on the deal he signed when moving to Anfield from QPR as a 16-year-old, but that was for just £300 a week.

Sterling will be looking for twice that sum per hour now he has won a full international cap.

But so far, talks have stalled over Liverpool's new salary tiering, which sees the superstars such as Luis Suarez given around £100,000 a week, established internationals - Stewart Downing, for example - on half that figure and the rest of the first-team squad at around £20k a week.
