Jordan Henderson set to sign new contract at Liverpool

Jordan Henderson has reportedly struck an agreement in principle with Liverpool on a new deal.

The Merseyside club have recently handed long-term contracts to Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho, Alisson Becker and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

However, Henderson’s future at Anfield looked uncertain as he reached the age of 31 in June.

The England international’s current contract expires in 2023, having signed a five-year deal in 2018.

However, the Reds don’t want to let any of their players’ deals run down after losing Gini Wijnaldum on a free transfer this summer.

As per The Athletic, the Reds have made a breakthrough in negotiations as they have reached an agreement in principle with the 31-year-old.

Liverpool have reportedly offered a three-year contract with the option of a fourth, and the midfielder is likely to sign the deal in the coming weeks.

Henderson joined the Merseysiders in 2011 from Sunderland in a deal worth around £20 million.

Since he arrived at Anfield, he has made 392 appearances across all competitions for the Reds, netting 30 goals and creating 51 assists.

His trophy cabinet includes a Premier League title, a Champions League and an EFL Cup.
