Jordan Henderson is the only viable candidate to replace Steven Gerrard as Liverpool captain

The midfielder, mooted as the player to be handed the captain’s armband when Steven Gerrard departs in the summer, will have just one year of his current contract to run in the summer, and Brendan Rodgers is keen for his future at the club to be secured.

Liverpool were hit with a huge blow when Henderson rejected a five-year deal, worth £80,000-a-week in November, which would have been a £15,000 increase on his current wages.

An improved offer, however, is set to be tabled, and Henderson, much to the delight of Reds fans, has revealed that he wants to remain at Liverpool for many years: “I love playing football for Liverpool and I want to be there for many more years. Whenever it gets sorted, it gets sorted. All I want to do is my best for club and country.”

The England international has become a pivotal part of Rodgers’ side, with his performances, and leadership qualities, this season easing the nerves of the Anfield faithful over the departure of Reds icon Gerrard in the summer.
