Henderson unconcerned about Liverpool contract

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson doesn’t anticipate any problems in talks regarding a new deal with the Premier League club, ESPN has reported.

The Reds’ vice-captain, appointed last month, is into the final two years of his current deal at Anfield and, following the contract extension for Daniel Sturridge, is expected to be offered fresh, lengthy terms.

Henderson, currently away on England duty ahead of the Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Estonia, has said he won’t take an active part in the negotiations as he expects everything to run smoothly. “I am just concentrating on playing football. I am not worried about that,” he said.

“I am enjoying my football, I love this club and I want to be here for many years so that shouldn’t be an issue,” the former Sunderland man added. “I’ll let my agent sort that out, it’s nothing to do with me.”

Henderson moved to Liverpool in the summer of 2011, having come through the youth set-up at the Stadium of Light. The 24-year-old made 79 appearances for the Black Cats, scoring five goals, and has thus far made 141 appearances for Liverpool, with 14 goals to his name. He also has 15 caps for England, making his international bow in 2010.
