Liverpool boost: Star set to sign new £100K-a-week contract

Liverpool have been handed a boost, with reports that Jordan Henderson is ready to sign a new contract with the Anfield club, accruing to Metro.

The England international’s current deal with the Merseyside club is set to expire next summer, with the Kop starting to panic that they could lose their talismanic midfielder.

Despite a hiatus in contract negotiations over recent months which have led to transfer speculation over his future, it appears that there is light at the end of the tunnel for Brendan Rodgers’ men.

Henderson is reportedly ready to commit his future to the Reds, with the former Sunderland man happy to put pen-to-paper on a new £100,000 per week deal.

With Steven Gerrard leaving Liverpool this summer to pursue a challenge in the MLS, Henderson is being touted as the next club captain and will be a majorly important part of the side’s midfield next term.
