Liverpool have agreed a new contract with club captain Jordan Henderson, according to The Athletic.
In the above report, it’s claimed a three-year deal on improved terms has been given the green light by the Reds and the experienced midfielder.
The Athletic, and more specifically David Ornstein, can be considered a solid source when it comes to domestic football news.
Talk of Henderson’s future was rife just before the new Premier League season kicked off, with Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain linked with moves for the Liverpool man, but those rumours can now die down.
The captain’s new contract is said to have a fourth optional year, which is based on appearances.
Given Henderson will be James Milner’s age by the time that potential final 12-month stretch comes around, it’s understandable why Liverpool are being cautious.
