Gerrard, 34, will make the announcement on Friday, with America’s Major League Soccer the expected destination.

The news has been reported by all the major Liverpool based journalists, including The Liverpool Echo‘s James Pearce:

Pearce writes that “His exact destination has yet to be confirmed but the ECHO understands that Gerrard is likely to head for America to play in Major League Soccer.”

LA Galaxy are favourites for his signature, the current MLS champions who have Robbie Keane among their ranks.

Gerrard has won every major honour except the Premier League title with Liverpool, making 695 appearances, scoring 180 goals.

His final appearance for the club at Anfield will be on May 16th against Crystal Palace. His final Premier League game will be at Stoke City on May 24th.

To mark the end of the 30-year wait for a league title, the ‘Liverpool Mishmash’ poster is available to order exclusively on This Is Anfield — the history of the Reds in one image!
