Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has signed a fresh long term contract with the club today.

After penning down a five-year contract with the club, Jordan Henderson said, “I’m over the moon that it’s finally done.

“There has been talk about it for a while now. It’s brilliant news for me to commit my future to this football club – I really feel that it’s a good time for us to look forward to the future, with the squad we’ve got, the manager, the size of the club and the fans we’ve got. I really think, over the next few years, we can challenge and start winning trophies.

“That’s the next phase; we’ve improved massively over the last few years, and I think the next phase for us is to start challenging for titles and trophies as well.”

The English midfielder joined the Reds in 2011. Since then, he has grown up to be one of the best midfielders not only in the club also in the country. He is the vice-captain in the club and is tipped to replace club legend Steven Gerrard as the captain after the latter leaves the club in the summer.

Jordan Henderson still had 14 months in his previous contract, but he decided to ink a fresh one committing his future to the club for a long time.

About the future club captain, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers opined, “Jordan is a brilliant professional and his dedication to his career and football in general makes him a role model to all young players.

“The fact he has made such a long-term commitment to Liverpool is a sign of his belief in what we are looking to do here. He will have a crucial role to play as we look to take this side forward and look to add success to the progress we have made.

“I am very excited about our future and what this group can achieve together; today’s announcement is another important positive step forward.
