Liverpool midfielder and captain-elect Jordan Henderson has admitted he hopes 20-year-old want-away winger Raheem Sterling will remain at the club, reports talkSPORT.

Sterling’s future at Anfield has been placed in doubt after the youngster refused to renew his contract and has pushed for a move away this summer.

Sterling enjoyed a bright start to his sides Premier League campaign but saw his performances slip toward the latter stages of the season.

Rumours of a move to Real Madrid, Paris St Germain and more recently to bitter rivals Manchester United have soured the players relationship with staff and fans at the club.

Despite Sterling’s antics this summer, fellow Liverpool star Jordan Henderson has spoken out in support of the Jamaican-born youngster: "He is always working as hard as he possibly can," said Henderson.

"He wants to improve all the time and I don't really think it [speculation] has affected him.

"He is a great professional, his work ethic is fantastic and he never really lets that bother him.

"For me, Raheem Sterling is a fantastic player and he has been brilliant for England and I hope he stays at Liverpool."

Sterling has been involved in a series of misdemeanours in his time at Merseyside. The latest of which came in April when Sterling was pictured smoking a shisha pip, while the player was involved in controversy after smoking nitrous oxide for recreational purposes. He was heavily criticised for his actions by Brendan Rodgers.
