LONDON - Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard will join a team in the United States when he leaves Anfield at the end of the season, the Premier League club confirmed on Saturday.

Gerrard, 34, announced on Friday that he has decided to leave Liverpool after a 25-year association with the club that has seen him make 695 appearances and score 180 goals.

He said that he would join a foreign club and in a teaser for an interview with him due to be broadcast on Liverpool's in-house television channel later on Saturday, Liverpool confirmed it will be a team in Major League Football.

"Steven Gerrard confirms he will move to the USA this summer," Liverpool said on Twitter.

Media reports in Britain suggest that Gerrard will follow in the footsteps of former England colleague David Beckham by joining the Los Angeles Galaxy.
