Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson is convinced Jonjo Shelvey will benefit from his loan move.

Henderson had a spell at Coventry City early in his career with Sunderland.

He regards his time at the Ricoh Arena as an important stage in his development - and he thinks the same may be true of Shelvey as he gains experience in the Championship with Blackpool.

"It is happy memories (against Norwich)," Henderson told Liverpoolfc.tv. "I've been to their ground three times I think and scored twice.

"It was an important time for me (at Coventry) to go and play first-team football. The lads were brilliant with me there, and the manager as well. I enjoyed my time there and it made me stronger.

"I'm sure Jonjo will be full of confidence when he comes back. It'll be a different experience for him playing first-team football. Jonjo is a talented player and I'm sure if he works hard there he'll come back even better."
