But the Northern Irishman will enter the final year of his current contract this summer and there has already been talk that Barcelona have identified him as a potential successor to the under-pressure Gerardo Martino.
"I am absolutely delighted he is here and I just hope that there is a lot of movement in Boston [from owners Fenway Sports Group] now because they have got to get him signed up as soon as possible," Gerrard told reporters.
"When players are in this situation with a year to go and you want to keep hold of them so desperately then the club reacts really quickly and gets it sorted.
"For me, I think he deserves a very long contract here and he is perfect for this club."
