Cape Town - Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre is hopeful Steven Gerrard could return to the club on loan from Los Angeles Galaxy next year, reports Football411.

The Reds captain has announced his plans to depart Anfield at the end of the current season, where he will then link up with the Major League Soccer side.

However, Ayre believes the former England international could be persuaded to return to Merseyside on a temporary deal during the MLS off-season.

"I've said openly to Steven and his representatives, as have Brendan and the owners, that we see Steven as part of the family," he told Liverpool radio station CityTalk.

"The fact that he's leaving at the end of the season doesn't mean it's the last we'll see of him at Liverpool.

"What that means, the details aren't known yet, but we will keep a regular dialogue with him and I hope we will see him here again in the long term."
