LIVERPOOL, England -- Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard on Monday signed a two-year contract extension with the Premier League club where he has spent his entire career.

The 33-year-old midfielder has scored 159 goals in 630 appearances since making his debut in 1998.

"It's great news," he said. "It lets me know the club thinks an awful lot of me and want me here.

"I'm glad it's all done and it's happened at the right time before the season, so I can just focus on playing as well as I can."

The England captain's Anfield career could extend beyond his 35th birthday.

"We're pleased today to add an extension to his existing agreement and that keeps him here until the end of his career," Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre said. "We've said what we'll do in two years' time is review it again and see how happy Steven is. We seem to always be happy with him, so hopefully we'll just continue in that vein."
