postheadericon Henderson joins up with resurgent Liverpool

Young English midfielder Jordan Henderson has joined Liverpool from Sunderland in a deal thought to be worth in the region of 20 million, with Kenny Dalglish and those on the Liverpool board beating off apparent interest from Manchester United to seal the deal. Henderson will travel to the club later this week for a medical and to finalise personal terms after the transfer fee was accepted by Sunderland and the club had provided the youngster with their blessing.

It had been expected that Henderson would become one of the first notable names in the Premier League to move before the start of next season after excelling in the early stages of the previous campaign for Sunderland, particularly in the side’s 3-0 drubbing of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, and also making his England debut after catching the eye of Fabio Capello. Even though the player’s international debut was widely slated in the media, the youngster looking very much like a man without too much experience to his name against a hungry France side, a number of Premier League clubs still recognised his potential and made him one of their summer targets.

Earlier in 2011, the talented 20-year-old was named by FIFA as one of the 13 young players to watch over the coming years and he is currently preparing to join up with the England Under-21 squad ahead of the eagerly awaited European Championships. However, he will, in all likelihood, make the Liverpool deal his main priority over the coming days, with the player desperate to take a forward step in what has already been an admirable career trajectory.

Niall Quinn, Sunderland’s widely respected chairman, made it clear that the club remain grateful to the player for what he helped them to achieve during his spell there, while also hinting that the transfer fee for Henderson, which many feel was ridiculously high, will allow Sunderland to improve their squad in one or two key positions.

Whether Henderson can fit in easily at a club that is still not finding it easy to haul itself back into contention at the top of the English game is not yet clear, but there’s no doubt that he possesses both the spirit and determination to aid the Reds’ bid for glory.
