Jordan Henderson insists he is out to prove that he is not a big-money flop at Liverpool.

The 22-year-old sealed a £16m move to Anfield from Sunderland last summer but is yet to start a Premier League game this season under Brendan Rodgers.

However, the midfielder insists he is out to prove his critics wrong and says that he sees his long-term future at Liverpool.

“From the outside it probably looks like that because of how much I played last year, and this season I haven’t started a Premier League game,” said Henderson.

“But I am coming into training every day, working hard and learning all the things I need to learn and I will continue to learn the game as the manager keeps telling me.

“I am very focused on what I need to do and it doesn’t make a difference what anyone else thinks. I want my future to be at Liverpool so I’ll give everything every day to make sure that happens.

“I definitely think in the future, given the opportunity I will take it and become a first-team regular for Liverpool.”
