Liverpool have cancelled tomorrow's planned meeting with Jamaica-born winger Raheem Sterling over comments made by the player's agent today. 

Sterling's agent Aidy Ward says the England forward will not sign a new deal even if Liverpool offered him £900,000 a week.

Sterling was expected to tell the Reds he wants a move away from Anfield this summer.

He has already rejected a new £100,000 a-week contract.

Ward says Sterling is definitely not signing a new contract with Liverpool. 

And Ward says his job is to make sure that he does his best for his client.

Liverpool believe there would be no point in having a meeting when the player's representative is quoted as saying a new deal would not be signed regardless of the figure.

Sterling's contract runs until 2017 and he told Liverpool's Reds manager, Brendan Rodgers before the Premier League draw at Chelsea on May 10, that he wants to leave the club.
