Liverpool confident about Sterling

Raheem Sterling is yet to agree terms on a new contract with Liverpool, but the club remain confident of tying him to a long-term deal.

Sterling, 17, is eligible to sign his first senior deal on December 8, his 18th birthday and has 18 months to run on his current deal. His impressive form has already alerted other clubs to his potential availability.

Liverpool remain confident of convincing Sterling his future is at Anfield, where he has made 14 appearances under Brendan Rodgers this term and earned his first England cap in the friendly defeat against Sweden.

But it is thought his representatives want to bring Sterling's earnings in line with the likes of Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson, players he has kept out of the starting line-up. Reports suggest that Sterling is still earning only £300 a week, while Downing is on £50,000 a week.

A club source said: "Negotiations continue to be constructive but we are not prepared to go into any specifics and we do not think this is best served through the media."

Rodgers has previously stated his desire for the winger to remain at Liverpool, describing it as the best place for Sterling in terms of his development as a player.

"I think it will be pretty straightforward. Raheem himself, his representatives and his family, they know he's at the best club he can ever be at for his development in both the short and long term. So that will be resolved. There won't be an issue there."

Jamaican-born Sterling moved to Liverpool from Queens Park Rangers in May 2010 during Rafael Benitez's reign as manager and became the club's second-youngest player ever when he made his Premier League debut against Wigan in March 2012.
