Liverpool Prepare New Contract For Jordan Henderson

Youngster’s current deal is due to run out in June 2016. 

Liverpool are set to hand in-form midfielder Jordan Henderson a new deal as a reward for the eye-catching displays the Englishman has shown for the Reds so far this season, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The 23-year-old only moved to Anfield from Sunderland in the summer of 2011 in a deal worth a staggering £20m.

And initially, the England international struggled badly for form on Merseyside, so much so that Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers even put the player up for sale last summer.

However, even though Fulham were interested in landing Henderson, the west London club refused to meet the Reds’ own valuation of the midfielder, and so the youngster remained at the club this season.

“Obviously it is a compliment but it’s what my aim is every time I play – and that is to improve”, Henderson told the club’s weekly magazine.

“With the staff and the players around us, I can definitely become a better player here, so I’ve just got to keep working hard and hopefully carry on improving.

“It is important – it gives you more confidence if you know everybody else is confident when you go on the pitch.”
