Over the summer, Liverpool have agreed new deals with a lengthy list of their top players, with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Alisson, and Virgil van Dijk all having put pen to paper on new contracts that will keep them on Merseyside for the foreseeable future.
Now, it appears captain Jordan Henderson will be the next name added to that list—despite earlier concerns his contract talks may have hit a snag—with The Athletic reporting that a three-year deal with an optional fourth has been agreed between player and club.
The fourth and potentially final year of the deal, which is said to be triggered based on the number of games Henderson plays leading up to it, could keep him at the club through the summer of 2025, at which point the Reds’ midfield stalwart will be 35 years old.
Meanwhile, though Henderson wasn’t involved in Saturday’s victory over Norwich City, both he and Thiago started in a behind closed doors friendly against Aston Villa on Sunday as Jürgen Klopp sought to extend pre-season for some of his late returning players.
Also involved were the likes of Curtis Jones—returning from a concussion suffered the week before against Osasuna—and youngster Kaide Gordon, who joined the more senior stars for the friendly rather than lining up with the U23s or academy over the weekend.
