The Reds skipper has committed to a new long-term deal at Anfield, with that agreement set to take him past 10 years of loyal service on Merseyside

Jordan Henderson has signed a new long-term contract at Liverpool, with his fresh terms set to keep him at Anfield until 2023.

The Reds skipper moved to Merseyside in the summer of 2011, with his extension taking him past a decade of years service at the club.

Henderson expressed his joy at putting pen to paper on a new deal, with the 28-year-old midfielder having established himself as a key man for Liverpool and England over recent years.

He told the Reds’ 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.”

Liverpool snapped up Henderson from Sunderland in a deal worth around £20 million ($26m).

Questions were asked of that investment as he initially struggled to make an impact, but his value has been without question for a number of seasons now.

Having inherited the captain’s armband with the Reds when Steven Gerrard departed in 2015, Henderson has now made 283 appearances for the club, netting 24 goals in the process.

Henderson will be also be looking for his Liverpool performances to keep him in England contention, with his tally of caps for his country taken to 44 while helping the Three Lions to reach the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia earlier this year.

He will be expected to feature for Gareth Southgate's side when they take on Spain at Wembley in their first Nations League game on September 8 and likely in the following friendly against Switzerland at Leicester's King Power Stadium three days later on September 11.
