Transfer insider Dean Jones spoke on The Football Terrace’s The Done Deal Show about what the future may hold for Jordan Henderson.
Reports have started to circulate about the future of the Liverpool captain with talks having now stalled over a potential new deal, although Henderson does still have two years remaining on his current contract.
Should Liverpool sell Henderson?
Henderson has been at the club since 2011 when he was signed from Sunderland and has managed to guide the club to their first-ever Premier League title and their first Champions League crown since 2005.
The 31-year old has become a mainstay at Anfield, but talks have stalled on a new deal, according to Jones.
“I think that’d be a really nice challenge, actually, and a nice step for Jordan Henderson. But if something like that isn’t there, I don’t really see where Jordan Henderson is going to go.”
TIF Thoughts on Henderson’s future…
Liverpool appear to be thinking of the here and now with the signing of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig, but they could do worse than to look ahead to 2023 as the club have 13 players who are set to be out of contract then.
Henderson has been a mainstay in the Liverpool side for several years now and after losing Georginio Wijnaldum and seeing how difficult it has become to replace him, Jurgen Klopp will surely not be willing to lose his captain anytime soon.
The Liverpool captain had big boots to fill when he was handed the armband following the departure of Steven Gerrard to LA Galaxy, but the Sunderland academy graduate has more than established himself as a top Premier League midfielder.
