The Nigeria international has signed on a season-long loan.
Henderson, who played with the 22-year-old at youth level for England, knows the winger has what it takes to fit perfectly into Brendan Rodgers' side.
"I've played with Victor before and he's a fantastic talent," he told Liverpoolfc.com. "He'll come in here and contribute to the team like the rest of the new signings.
"He'll be a brilliant addition to the squad and I'm really looking forward to seeing him.
"He's very talented. He's powerful, he's good with the ball, he can use both feet and he's good at cutting inside or going on down the outside.
"Victor is a quick player and he can get goals as well. I think he's perfect for our team. Hopefully he'll do really well here."
