Amidst talk of a loan move away from Anfield in January, Jordan Henderson maintains that he intends to be at Liverpool for the long haul, reports the Daily
Since arriving from Sunderland in June 2011, Henderson has failed to live up to his £16m fee and has struggled to get into Brendan Rodgers’ first team plans. He made his first start of the campaign in his side’s 0-0 stalemate with Swansea on Sunday, previously making five appearances from the bench.
Despite featuring seven times in this season’s Europa League and twice in the Capital One Cup, Henderson will be hoping to push his way into Rodgers’ starting XI after missing only one of Liverpool’s league matches last season under Kenny Dalglish.

‘”” Henderson said. ‘”When I signed for Liverpool, I definitely wanted it to be long term. I want to make sure that when I’m given opportunities I work hard and try to take them.”
