MANCHESTER CITY are considering a £15million bid in this month’s transfer window for Sunderland’s new England midfielder Jordan Henderson.
The move by City would be dependent on manager Roberto Mancini reducing his squad first.

Young Jordan Henderson has been in sparkling form over the past 18 months and is now a regular in the Sunderland first team and is now well and truly part of Fabio Capello’s England international set up and interest in the youngster is growing rapidly in the 20 year old with Manchester United said to be very interested in acquiring his services but now Roberto Mancini is hoping to beat Sir Alex Ferguson to the punch by making an offer this month.
Henderson has shown great maturity this season and his intelligence on the ball and his ability to bridge the midfield and attack has helped won him many admirers and Steve Bruce may struggle to keep hold of the local born starlet in the face of such high profile interest.
Manchester United boss Ferguson has stated publicly his interest in Henderson and his obvious links with his former defender Bruce may help secure a move ahead of interest from City.
