Jordan Henderson puts pen to paper

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has ended weeks of speculation about his future and signed a new contract with Liverpool FC.

“I’m obviously very honoured and proud to continue the journey I’ve already been on here,” he said after agreeing a new long-term deal.

“It’s amazing to finally get it done and just concentrate on looking forward and what the future may hold.

“I’m in a different place of course, as a player and as a person, from when I first walked in. I’ve learned and grown a lot over my time here, and I’ve got to thank a lot of people for that.

“I’ve loved every minute of it, even when I look back at the tough times, I was still enjoying being a part of this football club. The longer I can do that, the better for me really. I want to be here as long as possible, I’ve always said that.

“To continue this journey is incredible for me and my family, and I hope the fans and the club feel the same way.”
