Jordan Henderson becomes sixth Liverpool player to sign new contract this summer, but Reds sweat over Roberto Firmino’s hamstring injury


Jordan Henderson has become the last Liverpool player to sign a new long-term contract this summer, it has been announced.

The Reds midfielder, 31, has 394 appearances for the club to his name since arriving from Sunderland for £ 20million a decade ago.

He captained the team to Champions League glory in 2019 and the Premier League title the following season.

It is understood that the England international’s new deal runs until summer 2025.

Henderson said on the official Liverpool website: “I am obviously very honored and proud to continue the journey I have already taken here.

“It’s amazing to finally get there and just focus on the future and what the future holds.

“I’m in a different place, of course, as a player and as a person, since I arrived. I’ve learned a lot and grown during my time here, and I have to thank a lot of people for that.

“I loved every minute of it, even when I look back on the tough times, I always enjoyed being a part of this football club. The longer I can do it, the better for me. I want to stay here the more long possible, I have always said it.

“Continuing this journey is amazing for me and my family, and I hope the fans and the club feel the same.”

The 64-cap England international also won the Supercopa, Club World Cup and League Cup during his stint at Liverpool.

Henderson, who was named the 2019-20 Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year and earlier this year received an MBE for service to football and charity, added: “Every year is the same, every year is the biggest challenge, the biggest season to come, I’m hungrier than ever.

“I feel as hungry as when I first walked in ten years ago, to prove to people that I deserve to be in this football club and to give everything every day for the badge, for the fans and for each other in this building.

“If we do this, I feel like we have a good chance of succeeding.”

Henderson is the sixth Liverpool player to extend his stay at Anfield in recent weeks, with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson all doing the same.

However, a number of Liverpool fans are upset by the lack of business the club have done during the transfer window with Ibrahima Konate who is expected to be their only signing.

It could become a problem if Roberto Firmino’s hamstring injury keeps him out for a long time. However, Liverpool’s ECHO reports that it doesn’t look like a big deal.

Fans are also asking the club to tie a number of their other key stars to new contracts, with current Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Firmino deals set to expire in 2023.
