Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has agreed a two-year contract extension that extends his previous deal until 2013.

The 28-year-old Club Captain is yet to confirm the deal by putting pen to paper, but is expected to sign in the next few days.

The news is a further boost to continuity at Anfield after Rafael Benitez signed a new five-year deal last month.

“This is fantastic news for the club,” Benitez told Liverpoolfc.tv

“Steven has once again shown his commitment and it was an easy deal to agree. As soon as we offered him the option he said ‘yes’.”

“There were no problems at all. He wants to stay for life.”

“This deal sends out another clear message that we are moving forward as a club. To know we have a player of Steven’s quality with us for many more years is a great boost for the club and the fans.”

“He is clearly a player who inspires those around him and even though he is playing very well at the moment, I still think his best years are ahead of him.”
