Los Angeles - Former England midfielder Steven Gerrard has left Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy, the club confirmed on Tuesday.

The 36-year-old was out of contract at the end of the Galaxy's MLS season and the club said in a statement that he "will not return to the LA Galaxy for the 2017 MLS season."

Gerrard, who moved to the United States in July last year after ending his long association with Liverpool, indicated that he could move on to another club rather than hang up his boots.

"I am now looking forward to spending time with my family as I consider the next stage of my career," he said in a statement released by the Galaxy.
