Gerrard confident of new deal

Steven Gerrard expects to sign a new contract with Liverpool this summer and extend his 15-year association with the club.

• Walsh: Derby weakened
• Gerrard can play out season

Gerrard, 32, has been ever-present so far this season and if he starts the Merseyside derby on Sunday it will be his 36th in a row, equalling his previous longest run between April 2006 and April 2007.

Although the Reds captain is not sure on the length of his potential new deal he is confident it will get sorted.

"They want me to extend, I want to extend, so it's just a matter of time really," he said. "How long for I'm not too sure yet. That's under discussion at the moment. But it will get sorted one way or another in the summer."

Manager Brendan Rodgers also expects Gerrard to extend his long association with the club and hailed the impact he has made this season.

"I have been ever so pleased with Stevie this year. For me as a manager, to have a captain like that has been brilliant," he said. "He's certainly one I would envisage to be here for a good few years yet.

"Stevie and I went out for something to eat a couple of weeks back and had a good chat about plans and whatnot.

"He is very deserving of it [a new contract]. He is a really humble man, who always puts the club first. We spoke earlier on in the season and wanted to make sure we were progressing and improving."
