Jordan Henderson signs new contract at Liverpool

Club captain set to remain with Merseyside club until 2025

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has signed a new deal that will keep him at the Premier League club until 2025.

The 31-year-old has made nearly 400 appearances since joining from Sunderland a decade ago and led Liverpool to their first league title for 30 years in 2020.

The England midfielder has also won the Uefa Champions League, Uefa Super Cup, Fifa Club World Cup and the League Cup during his time at Anfield.

Henderson has become the latest player to commit their long-term futures to the Merseysiders after Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Alisson Becker, Virgil Van Dijk and Andy Robertson.

“I’m obviously very honoured and proud to continue the journey I’ve already been on here,” Henderson told Liverpool’s official website.

“It’s amazing to finally get it done and just concentrate on looking forward and what the future may hold.

“I’m in a different place of course, as a player and as a person, from when I first walked in. I’ve learnt and grown a lot over my time here, and I’ve got to thank a lot of people for that.

“I’ve loved every minute of it, even when I look back at the tough times, I was still enjoying being a part of this football club. The longer I can do that, the better for me really. I want to be here as long as possible, I’ve always said that.

“To continue this journey is incredible for me and my family, and I hope the fans and the club feel the same way.”

Henderson, who was named 2019-20 Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year, and earlier this year awarded an MBE for services to football and charity, added: “Every year is the same, every year is the biggest challenge, the biggest season ahead. I feel as hungry as ever.

“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 absolutely everything every single day for the badge, for the fans and for each other in this building.

“If we do that, I feel as though we’ve got a good chance of being successful.”
