Liverpool are set to reward Jordan Henderson for his improved performances in a Liverpool shirt, with the offer of a lucrative new contract.

Henderson has already been promoted to vice-captain by manager Brendan Rodgers this season, and looks set to follow Daniel Sturridge in signing a contract with improved personal terms, whilst Raheem Sterling is set to begin negotiations on a new deal in the next fortnight.

Henderson struggled having initially joined Liverpool in a £16million deal from Sunderland in 2011, but has now established himself as one of the most important players at Anfield.

The 24-year-old has scored one goal an provided three assists so far this term, whilst he excelled during the Reds title challenge last season.

Liverpool’s owners have a policy of rewarding players who have progressed with improved contracts, with Henderson next on the list after Sturridge.

Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling are set to follow, whilst Rodgers also wants to tie captain Steven Gerrard to an extended deal.
