Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has admitted he could leave Anfield next summer in pursuance of furthering his playing career, should his boyhood club decide not to offer him a new deal.

The 34-year-old joined the academy at the age of nine and is closing in on 700 appearances for the Merseyside club, only behind Ian Callaghan and former teammate Jamie Carragher in terms of all-time Liverpool appearances.

Gerrard will be out of contract come the end of the season and has told the Daily Mail that contract talks are yet to begin.

"I can only worry about this season because I'm only contracted until May," the former England midfielder commented. "As it stands at the moment, I'm here until the end of the season and want to make the most of it. I certainly won't be retiring this summer. I will play beyond this season.

"We will have to wait and see if that's at Liverpool or somewhere else. That's Liverpool's decision. If they don't come then I will see what's out there."
