BREAKING NEWS: Henderson agrees new 'long-term' Liverpool deal

Liverpool have tied their captain Jordan Henderson down to a new deal, prolonging his Anfield stay.

Jordan Henderson has committed his future to Liverpool after signing a new "long-term" contract, the Anfield club have confirmed.

The England international midfielder joined Liverpool from Sunderland in 2011 and took a little while to win some fans over, but he has since gone on to become an integral player under Jurgen Klopp.

Henderson was made vice-captain in September 2014 and, although he endured an injury-disrupted 2015-16 season, he has been a midfield lynchpin ever since.

Following the departure of Steven Gerrard to LA Galaxy in 2015, Henderson was rewarded for his emergence as a leader, taking the armband full-time from the Reds great.
