The 24-year-old will have only one-year left on his Liverpool deal at the end of the season amid claims he has rejected a new deal at Anfield but according to the Daily Star he has now said he wants to remain at the club.
“The contract issue is definitely not a distraction and it’s not a major issue,” said Henderson, reports Daily Star.
“I love playing for Liverpool and I want to be there for many years.”
Henderson added that whilst everyone else will make an issue of it it does bother him that he has yet to agree to a new contract.
“…for me, it’s just letting my agent and the club deal with it and whenever it gets sorted, it gets sorted.
“All I want to do is my best for club and country. Contracts and stuff can be sorted out by clubs and agents.
“That’s why we’ve got agents and hopefully this can get done soon.
“All I want to do is concentrate on my football and not let this get in the way.”
Henderson has been touted as the next Liverpool captain according to the Star with the exit of Steven Gerrard this summer to LA Galaxy – and with his commanding performances from midfielder and his six goals and seven assists it’s not hard to see why.
