Jordan Henderson is on the verge of signing a new contract with Liverpool.

The 24-year-old is set to be offered improved terms having come on leaps and bounds under Brendan Rodgers in the past 12 months.

Henderson has been named as the clubs vice-captain, and looks set to succeed Steven Gerrard as Liverpool skipper when he eventually retires.

It has not all been easy for Henderson, having struggled initially following his move from Sunderland in 2011.

But the England international says he wants to stay at the club ‘for many years’, having declared his love for Liverpool.

“I’m just concentrating on playing football,” Henderson said. “I’m not worried about that.

“I’m enjoying my football. I love this club and I want to be here for many years so that shouldn’t be an issue.

“I’ll let my agent sort that out. It’s nothing to do with me.”

Daniel Sturridge signed a contract extension at the club only last week, whilst Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling are also set to be offered new deals.
