Steven Gerrard has confirmed he will be joining LA Galaxy in the summer, describing the move as a ‘match made in heaven.’

The Liverpool captain revealed he would be quitting Anfield at the end of his current contract, and has now revealed his next destination will be the one in which former England captain David Beckham made his name in America.

“I think it’s a match made in heaven really,” Gerrard told the LA Times.

“One of the reasons I chose LA Galaxy was because of the success they’ve had recently.

“I want to finish my career very strong. I want to add some medals and trophies to my collection.”

The MLS season runs between March and December, raising the prospect of a short term loan back at Anfield in the 2015-16 season the manner in whic Thierry Henry did with Arsenal whilst at New York Red Bulls.

However, Gerrard says it is not something he has considered yet.

“I’ve not even thought about the possibility of a loan,” he added.

“I’ve not had that conversation with anyone. I can’t rule it out, but I can’t confirm it would happen either.

“The way the season works in the MLS there’s a break around winter time. “What I can say is that I’d love to be able to come back and train with the lads to keep my fitness levels up.

“Whether that could lead to playing for the club again I don’t know. That wouldn’t be my decision. You’d have to ask others that question.”
