Daniel Sturridge is all set to return from a spell on the sidelines and as he enters his second year with Liverpool, the forward is happy with life on Merseyside.

The striker has linked up brilliantly with Luis Suarez this season scoring goals for fun with the fire power they have provided propelling the Reds towards the top of the league.

Sturridge when speaking to FourFourTwo said, "Liverpool are an unbelievable club with great history... it wasn’t a case of “Should I go?”; it was more like “When can I come?

"When they put the bid in for me I was just thinking about getting myself up the motorway as fast as possible!”

After playing a starring role at the beginning of the season, Sturridge has been out with an ankle problem since November but is on the verge of returning to his Liverpool side.

England fans will want him fit and firing goals in time for the summer too and so long as he is physically fresh he looks all but certain to be in Roy Hodgson's 23 man squad.

Sturridge had always shown he had the ability to get goals for his side when playing at Manchester City and Chelsea but for one reason or another could not hold down a regular first team spot.

He added, “It was easy [to leave Chelsea]. I was ready to go and wanted to further my career. When Liverpool came knocking there was only one outcome."

Sturridge has been in scintillating form scoring 19 goals in just 26 Premier League appearances since leaving Chelsea this time last year.

Liverpool face Stoke at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday looking to make up some ground on the three sides above them.
