BBC Sport - Raheem Sterling plans to discuss new Liverpool deal in the summer

Sterling 'motivated by trophies not money'

Raheem Sterling tells BBC Sport he's not a "money-grabbing 20-year-old" as speculation about his Liverpool future rumbles on.

The England international has put contract talks on hold and says he will not discuss a new deal with the club until the end of the season, no matter how big a deal he might be offered.

Sterling, who has two years left on a contract that gives him £35,000 a week, confirms he had already turned down a deal worth £100,000 a week.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with BBC Sport's Natalie Pirks, Sterling insists he is motivated by trophies not financial rewards and says his sole focus is playing football and achieving success with Liverpool this season.
