Liverpool FC captain Jordan Henderson has expressed his delight after signing a new long-term contract with the club.

Henderson has made 284 appearances for Liverpool FC since joining the club from Sunderland seven years ago, contributing 24 goals for the team.

The midfield stalwart has developed a sterling reputation during his time at Anfield for being a reliable and tenacious player with a superb range of passing – attributes which saw him awarded the captain’s armband three years ago when Steven Gerrard left the club.

The England international has only started one of Liverpool FC’s first four matches of the new Premier League season, after the arrival of Naby Keita this summer who has so far been preferred in his usual position.

However, it is highly likely that Henderson still has a key role to play in Jurgen Klopp’s team as the year progresses and indeed in future seasons, after he signed a new deal with the club on Monday.

He spoke to Liverpool’s official website after the announcement was made, revealing how delighted he was to have secured his immediate future at the club.

“I’m very happy to have signed a new contract for a long period of time. I’m absolutely delighted.” Henderson said.

“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.”
