Liverpool confirm surprise talks to sign midfielder on loan

Liverpool have admitted they are already in talks to sign Steven Gerrard on loan next season, according to Metro.

The Anfield captain will leave the club at the end of the season to sign for LA Galaxy on an 18-month contract.

But with the Premier League and Major League Soccer seasons running at different times, Liverpool have already made moves to bring Gerrard back to the club on a short-term loan deal next January.

Liverpool chief-executive Ian Ayre said: “It’s conceivable.

“It happens a lot in MLS and it’s something we talked to Steven and his representatives about.”

“The fact that he’s leaving at the end of the season doesn’t mean it’s the last we’ll see of him at Liverpool.”

Gerrard, 34, revealed earlier this month he had decided to ‘experience something different‘ by turning down  a new contract offer and to let his current deal expire at the end of this season.

He said in a statement: : “This has been the toughest decision of my life and one which both me and my family have agonised over for a good deal of time.

“My decision is completely based on my wish to experience something different in my career and life and I also want to make sure that I have no regrets when my playing career is eventually over.”

The 34-year-old has been at Liverpool for his entire career and has played over 700 games for the club, scoring 182 goals.

The Anfield captain has won the Champions League, a UEFA Cup, two FA Cups and three League Cups during his time at the club.
