Jordan Henderson has signed a new four-year deal with Liverpool, which will keep him at the club until the summer of 2025
Jordan Henderson joined Liverpool from Sunderland in the summer of 2011; his contract with the Reds was set to expire in 2023. During his tenure at Anfield, Henderson has made over 390 appearances and won the Premier League, Champions League, and League Cup.
Since joining Liverpool from Sunderland in 2011, the 31-year-old has made 394 appearances for the Reds and was named captain in 2015.
The extension of the Captain
Henderson, who has won the Premier League, Champions League, and League Cup with Liverpool, had two years left on his previous contract, but he has now been extended until 2025 at Anfield.
After Virgil van Dijk, Alisson, Fabinho, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Andrew Robertson all signed new contracts this summer, the England midfielder becomes the latest senior player to pledge his future to the team.
“I’m certainly extremely pleased and delighted to continue the adventure I’ve already been on here,” Henderson said on the club’s official website.
Everything’s wonderful to finally have it completed and to be able to focus only on the future.”
“Of course, as a player and a person, I’m in a different place than when I initially stepped in. I’ve learnt and developed a lot in my time here, and I owe a debt of gratitude to a lot of people.”
Jordan Henderson’s immense achievements
Henderson completed a decade as a Liverpool player earlier this summer, and during that time, he has received many personal honors, including the 2019-20 FWA Footballer of the Year and an MBE for his contributions to football and charity.
He went on to say: “Every year is the same; every year is the most difficult task, the most difficult season to come. I’m as hungry as I’ve ever been.”
“I feel as hungry as I did when I first walked in 10 years ago, to prove to people that I deserve to be at this football club and give everything I have every single day for the badge, for the fans, and for each other in this building.”
