After turning down a new £100,000-a-week deal, Liverpool star, Raheem Sterling, has stated that he is not a "money-grabber," saying he will not discuss a new contract until the summer, no matter how big a deal he might be offered leading up to then.

The 20-year old England international said: "It's not about the money at all. It’s about winning trophies in my career. That's all.

I don't talk about how many cars I'm going to drive, how many houses I've got. I just purely want to be the best I can be."

Sterling, who joined the Merseyside club from QPR in 2010, and has two years left on a contract worth £35,000 a week, added: "I don't want to be perceived as a money-grabbing 20-year-old. I just want to be seen as a kid who loves to play football and to do the best for the team."

In a recent interview, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said: “Raheem had been offered an incredible deal for a young player.

I am sure it will be resolved and the concentration for him is now on his football and it is clear the terms of when those talks will begin again."

Liverpool's last piece of silverware came in 2012, when they beat Cardiff on penalties to win the League Cup.
