Steven Gerrard announces move to United States

London (AFP) – Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard revealed on Saturday that he will join an as-yet unnamed team in the United States when he leaves Anfield at the end of the season.

Gerrard, 34, announced on Friday that he has decided to leave Liverpool after a 25-year association with the club that has seen him make 695 appearances and score 180 goals.

“I’ll be going to play in America,” he told Liverpool’s in-house television channel, LFC TV. “But I’m not over the line with any team just yet. I’m close and as soon as I know, I’ll make the announcement.”

Media reports in Britain suggest that Gerrard will follow in the footsteps of former England colleague David Beckham by joining the Los Angeles Galaxy, where he would be reunited with onetime Liverpool team-mate Robbie Keane.

Stateside, ESPN.com cited an unnamed source in reporting that Gerrard will join the Galaxy on an 18-month contract, on a pro-rated deal worth $6 million per year, a report the club would not confirm.
