Liverpool midfielder Jay Spearing is to hold discussions at Anfield regarding a contract extension, skysports.com understands.
The 20-year-old impressed as a second-half substitute in last week's thrashing of Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League, offering a sign of his potential.
And that form is thought to have made manager Rafa Benitez keen to secure Spearing's long-term future.
The youngster made his competitive first-team debut in December 2008, coming on as a substitute in a 3-1 Champions League win against PSV Eindhoven.
Spearing was the captain of the Liverpool Under 18 side who won the FA Youth Cup in 2007.
