Sterling says "I'm no money-grabber"

Liverpool striker Raheem Sterling insists he is not "a money grabber" after talks on a new contract with the club were put on hold until the summer. The 20 year old player has been made an offer, believed to be in the region of £100,000 a week, but talks have stalled.

In an interview with the BBC he said all the speculation over his new deal had all been "a bit much" and he just wants to focus on football at this time. He said 'I keep hearing I've rejected all sorts of contracts. Me, the club and my reps have spoken about it and put talks on hold until the end of the season, so it's frustrating to hear the contract situation keep going on and on."
