The 20-year-old’s future has been a source of speculation in recent months amid reports that the Reds have had their recent offers of a new deal rejected by the winger.
Sterling, who has been linked with a transfer to Real Madrid in the past and whose Reds contract expires in June 2017, is understood to be holding out for an increased wage packet.
I don’t think there is a better place for young lads than Liverpool
However, the England international has indicated his desire to stay at Anfield and is hoping that his future can be resolved soon.
Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday afternoon, Sterling told reporters: “I speak to my representative every day and he has told me to just concentrate on playing football and him and the club will deal with it; that is the most important thing.
“I am concentrating on winning games for Liverpool and hopefully it will be done soon.
“I don’t think there is a better place for young lads than Liverpool at this moment in time. The manager has blooded a lot of young players like myself and Jordon [Ibe]. He puts you in at the deep end and it seems like at that moment you are ready.
“Every young player is getting a chance when they show they are working hard on the training pitch and that is credit to the manager for giving them the chance to shine at the highest level.”
Sterling has scored six goals and made five assists in 24 Premier League games so far this season.
Speaking late last month, Brendan Rodgers insisted that he is confident that Sterling will agree a new deal with the Reds in the near future.
