Liverpool fans react to news of new Jordan Henderson contract

Some Liverpool fans have reacted to the news that Jordan Henderson has signed a new contract.

What’s the story?

Liverpool have confirmed the England international has committed his long-term future by signing a four-year deal.

It will be music to the ears of those associated with the outfit after a tricky summer.

Signings have been at a premium with only one player arriving at Anfield thus far.

Ibrahima Konate joined the club back at the start of the transfer window, however, no signings have followed.

Meanwhile, Gini Wijnaldum left the club on a free transfer for Paris Saint Germain.

A new contract for Henderson follows on from extensions for Virgil van Dijk, Alisson, Fabinho, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson.

Henderson news lightens the mood

Konate was a solid addition for Jurgen Klopp, especially after the injury nightmare at centre-half last campaign.

However, the Merseysiders need far more bodies, especially in attack and midfield. The departures of Xherdan Shaqiri and Wijnaldum have left the first-team squad looking incredibly light.

Their captain is by far their most important player and is more than deserving of a four-year contract, despite his age.

His leadership and qualities are invaluable to Liverpool as they look to do battle for the Premier League title this season.

More importantly, it means no more players leaving on a free transfer.
