Steven Gerrard has revealed that he will begin training with Liverpool next week but has insisted that he won't sign for club on loan. 

Speaking on BT Sport this evening, the LA Galaxy midfielder has admitted that he's hoping to 'learn a few things' from new Reds chief Jurgen Klopp. In fact, Gerrard has insisted that he's looking forward to seeing what the German coach is all about. 

After guiding the Reds to a wonderful 4-1 victory against Manchester City on Saturday, Klopp has started to make his mark on Merseyside, but it appears that he won't be boosted by the temporary signing of the club's former captain.

But Gerrard is certainly excited by the prospect of linking up with the revered coach on the training ground. 

Gerrard stated: "Yeah, next week. I'm going to go in for a couple of weeks and train with Mr. Klopp, so I'm really looking forward to that to see what he's all about and learn a few things off him."

However, when asked whether he could sign for the club on loan, Gerrard responded by saying: "No."

Right decision 

Gerrard lining up for the Reds again would prove a magnificent sight for the Kop, but the veteran midfielder shouldn't be tempted by one final stint at Anfield. At 35-years-old, the midfielder is no longer at the peak of his powers and should instead concentrate on his new side. 

Under the guidance of Klopp, Liverpool are already starting to look like a new team; the likes of Emre Can, Lucas and James Milner are beginning to come to prominence, so they will be hoping to prove themselves on a consistent basis over the coming weeks and months. 

Jordan Henderson - Gerrard's successor as skipper - will also have a role to play when he proves his fitness, so the 48-year-old coach has a number of midfield options at his disposal.
