Liverpool starlet Raheem Stirling is yet to be made a firm contract offer after his representatives met with the club's officials earlier this week, but the club are still confident that an agreement can be made.
Stirling has always been highly rated as his came through the youth systems at QPR and then Liverpool. He has taken his chance under Brendan Rodgers and after being a star performer for the Reds this season is viewed as an important member of the team.
He was given his first cap by England manager Roy Hodgson this month and with Stirling turning 18 on the 8th December it had been expected that he would commit his long term future to the club, but as they are still unable to reach an agreement there has been increased speculation that he could leave Anfield.
A club source told the Daily Mail, "Negotiations continue to be constructive but we are not prepared to go into any specifics and we do not think that is best served through the media.”
It is unlikely that Stirling will in fact leave Merseyside, but if the contract talks remain at deadlock many of the other Premier League giants will look show their interest in one of England's brightest young stars.
