Liverpool's teenage forward Raheem Sterling has made his breakthrough into the first team and the youngster has been impressive this season but new rumours claim that the player is stalling on a new deal with the Reds. However, manager Brendan Rodgers has moved quickly to deny reports of any problems in the signing of a new contract with the player.
The 17 year-old winger has already made 18 appearances for Liverpool this season and has showed great promise in playing a support role to striker Luis Suarez. Brendan Rodgers is confident that following his regular involvement with Liverpool's first team, the teenager will soon agree to a new deal to stay at Anfield, according to reports in Sky Sports.
Rodgers dismissed the rumours of a contract impasse, saying, â€œI think it will be pretty straightforward. That will be resolved. There won't be an issue there. I think Raheem himself, his representatives and his family know he is at the best club he could ever be at in terms of his development short and long-term.â€
Sterling's performances also saw him make his debut for the English national team this week when they faced Sweden in a friendly. The player has established himself as an integral part of Liverpool's first team and Rodgers will be keen on tying down the young Englishman to a long-term deal.
