Henderson pens five-year Liverpool extension

Liverpool have tied down Jordan Henderson to a new long-term contract extension.

Goal reports the deal will keep Henderson contracted at Anfield until 2023, taking him past a decade of years service at the club.

Henderson told Liverpool's official website: "I'm very happy to have signed a new contract for a long period of time. I'm absolutely delighted.

"It doesn't seem like too long ago when I signed my first one – it feels like yesterday, really – but a lot has happened since then.

"I feel it's been a progressive journey for me throughout my time here and one I've enjoyed so much.

"There is no other place in the world I would rather play football. I want to be here for as long as I can be.

"I'm so privileged to have been a part of this club for so long, and hopefully even longer now."

Henderson joined Liverpool from Sunderland for £20m in 2011. The 28-year-old has handed the captaincy upon Steven Gerrard's retirement in 2015.
