Cape Town - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says a new deal for Raheem
Sterling will be "concluded imminently" as the Premier League giants
look to secure the forward's long-term future.
The England international has proved one of the Reds' shining
stars since last season but has been heavily linked with a move away
from Anfield, with Real Madrid thought to be keen admirers.
And while the 20-year-old still has two years remaining on his
current deal, Rodgers is keen for him to commit himself to the
"It is something the club are speaking with his representatives
on and I would think that would be concluded imminently," Football411 quote Rodgers as saying.
"The player is very happy and it (the delay) is nothing to do
with Raheem. He wants to be here, so hopefully we get the solution on
that very soon."
