Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has signed a new contract which ties him to Anfield until 2025.
The England international’s previous deal had two years left to run and this extension will take him up to the age of 35. The Athletic revealed earlier in August that Henderson was expected to end the uncertainty surrounding his future after striking an agreement in principle to sign a new long-term contract with the Anfield club.
Upon penning fresh terms, Henderson told Liverpool’s club website: “I’m obviously very honoured and proud to continue the journey I’ve already been on here.
“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 learned 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.”
Henderson has already clocked up a decade of service to Liverpool since his £20 million move from Sunderland in 2011. He’s closing in on 400 appearances for the club and has continued to grow in stature since succeeding Steven Gerrard as captain six years ago.
He has skippered Jurgen Klopp’s side to Champions League and Premier League glory.
