Jordan Henderson has put an end to any transfer speculation by agreeing a new deal at Liverpool that could see the midfielder remain with the club until 2020.

The 24-year-old has all but signed the new contract at Anfield that is worth £100,000 a week, and is expected to put pen to paper later in the week, according to the Daily Express.
He will be able to earn considerably more, as the Express also report that the extension is incredibly lucrative in terms of bonuses.
The former Sunderland man’s commitment to the Reds means that this week has already started a lot better than the last one ended. After defeat to Aston Villa in the FA Cup, and with no chance of league success, the news that one of his best players has extended his stay is likely to lift some of the gloom surrounding Brendan Rodgers.
The manager has received criticism following the disappointing display at Wembley, but the fact that Henderson is staying may be a big vote of confidence for his boss.
