Liverpool – Reuters
Liverpool announced on Tuesday that it has extended captain Jordan Henderson’s contract to allay doubts about his future at the English Premier League club.
Liverpool did not disclose the duration of the contract, but British media reported that Henderson will remain at Anfield until 2025.
Henderson, 31, came to Liverpool in 2011, played nearly 400 games, became captain in 2015 and contributed to the team’s sixth Champions League title in 2019 and the first English Premier League title in 30 years in 2020.
“I am, of course, honored and very proud to continue my journey here,” Henderson said in a statement.
“It’s great to get it done and just focus on progressing. Of course I’m in a different place as a player and as a person since my first step here.”
Liverpool are fifth in the league after a 1-1 draw with Chelsea over the weekend and will visit Leeds United on September 12 when the league resumes after the international break.
