Steven Gerrard commits his future to Liverpool by signing a new contract at Anfield.

Captain Steven Gerrard has extended his contract with Liverpool.

The Premier League outfit have refused to reveal the length of the extension, but it is believed to be a new two-year deal that will tie Gerrard to his boyhood club until 2015.

Speaking about his new terms, the 33-year-old midfielder told the club's official website: "It lets me know the club thinks an awful lot of me and want me here. There was a year left [on my contract] which was quite unusual. I think it was the first time I've got that far down into a contract.

"I'm glad it's all done and it's happened at the right time before the season, so I can just focus on playing as well as I can for the next two years. I don't want to be talking about myself or my contract situation going into a season.

"The contract was first mentioned by the manager in March and in a couple of interviews I was asked quite a bit about the contract. It takes your mind away from the football, so fair play to the club - the timing is spot on. It's all done and dusted and now I can just focus on the football side."

Since he broke into the side in 1998, Gerrard has made 630 appearances for Liverpool, scoring 159 goals in the process.
