Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is ‘adamant’ that Raheem Sterling will stay at the club despite reported interest from Europe’s finest, but on current form it will be equally important for him to tie down Jordan Henderson for the long-term at Anfield.

Sterling’s future has been the subject of interest from the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain. The 19-year-old set up the decisive goal for Henderson as Liverpool returned to winning ways.
Liverpool know the £30,000-a-week deal they agreed with Sterling 18 months ago is low for an international regular and, while Rodgers revealed discussions have started about a new contract, no agreement appears imminent.
