Rodgers aiming to keep Gerrard
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed he wants to keep skipper Steven Gerrard at Anfield.
The 34-year-old Gerrard, whose existing deal expires in June next year, had raised the possibility of leaving his home-town club with no new deal on the table.
However, speaking after his side's 1-0 Barclays Premier League defeat at Newcastle on Saturday afternoon, Rodgers said: "It's quite straightforward.
"I had a meeting with Steven's representative explaining the situation. I very much want him to be a part of what we are doing here.
"He's been a brilliant captain for me. I relayed that to the ownership.
"I'm sure he will go away with that and hopefully his representative will organise a deal. Steven is very much part of what I'm doing here. He's a unique player, a unique talent."
