England Player Raheem Sterling Commits ‘Long-Term’ to Liverpool

Dec. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Raheem Sterling has committed “his long-term future,” to Liverpool, the 18-time English champion said today, without saying by how many years.

Sterling, 18, in November became the club’s youngest ever international player when he made his England debut against Sweden. He joined Liverpool in 2010 and has made 25 appearances for the first team this season.

“Since the summer, Luis Suarez, Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel, Jonjo Shelvey and Suso have all signed new long-term contracts and it’s a clear indication of our intent to keep the players we believe are crucial to bringing success on the pitch,” Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre said in a statement on the club website.
