It looks like the Steven Gerrard transfer saga is coming to an end almost as quickly as it began.

Just days after announcing that he would be leaving Liverpool after 17 years with the club, Gerrard looks set to finalise a deal with the LA Galaxy according to reports from Ben Smith of the BBC.

The deal taking Gerrard to North America will be an 18-month contract worth around £6million to the Whiston-born Gerrard, around £76,000 a week.

With that deal, the former England captain will become one of the highest paid players in the league as soon as the ink is dried on his contract. Only Brazilian star Kaka, who signed for Orlando City, will be making more than Gerrard during the 2015 MLS season.

Gerrard will be brought in by the Galaxy to fill the void left by the retiring Landon Donovan. Donovan, the greatest player in the history of US Soccer and MLS' All-Time leading goalscorer, decided to quit the after the 2014 season at the age of 32 after being left out of Jurgen Klinsmann's squad for the World Cup in Brazil.

Donovan's retirement opened up a designated player spot for the Galaxy to use which has allowed them to bring Gerrard in. The other DP's on the Galaxy roster are U.S international Omar Gonzalez and former Liverpool and Republic of Ireland striker Robbie Keane.

Gerrard has had an illustrious career in which he has won a Champions League, UEFA Cup, two FA Cups as well as playing in multiple World Cups and earning 114 international caps for England.

Maybe he'll finally know what it feels like to win a league title with the Galaxy, who are the current defending MLS champs.
