Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has said he’s more than happy to wait until the end of the season before holding talks with the club over extending his deal, reports Sky
The England international, 24, has been tipped to succeed long-serving midfielder Steven Gerrard as captain of Liverpool when the veteran leaves in the summer, and Gerrard recently urged the club to secure Henderson down to a long-term contract as soon as possible. His current deal will be up at the end of next season, but Henderson isn’t worried, as he feels his future is on Merseyside.
Signed from Sunderland back in 2011, Jordan Henderson has become a key player for both club and country, and is regarded as one of the best box-to-box midfielders in the Premier League. He revealed the time deals can take due to agents and other representatives of the club holding talks, so he would prefer to bide him time until the summer to extend his stay at Anfield.
“It’s something that could distract me from my football and I don’t want that to happen. We’re just really focused on our football, and our agents will sort the other side of things out. Hopefully they can work something out soon, if not then we’ll just wait until the end of the season,” he said.
