Former Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli has urged teenage winger Raheem Sterling to sign a new contract at the club.

The youngster turned 18 earlier this month but negotiations over his first senior deal have yet to reach a conclusion over wage demands, and other clubs are closely monitoring the situation.

"My advice would be sign the contract and stay at Liverpool unless there is something which makes him really uncomfortable," said the Frenchman. "We tried to look after Raheem as much as we could - he was really a long-term project - and I think he should commit."
