Three Lions skipper Steven Gerrard signs contract extension with Liverpool
England captain Steven Gerrard has agreed a contract extension with Liverpool.
Gerrard committed his future to the club by putting pen to paper on the deal at Melwood on Monday morning.
After signing the deal, Gerrard said: “I think everyone knows what it means to me.
"I've been here that long and so to extend, it's a big day for me and I'm really happy for myself and my family. It's great news.
"It lets me know the club thinks an awful lot of me and want me here.
"I'm glad it's all done and it's happened at the right time before the season, so I can just focus on playing as well as I can."
Having spent his entire career at the club, the deal further extends Gerrard's Liverpool love affair.
Since breaking into the first team in 1998, the midfielder has made 630 appearances for the club, scoring 159 goals, and helping the team to numerous trophies, including the Champions League, FA Cup, UEFA Cup and League Cup.
After undergoing surgery for a shoulder injury at the end of last season, Gerrard missed England’s last matches against Republic of Ireland and Brazil, but he’ll be hoping to be back in action at Wembley Stadium next month for the Teenage Cancer Trust
International with Scotland.
