Liverpool have signed English midfielder Jordan Henderson for £20million with David N’Gog going to Sunderland as part of the deal, according to Sky Sports. The deal is contingent on Henderson passing his medical on Wednesday as well as agreeing personal terms. But it looks very likely that Jordan Henderson will be playing his football at Anfield next season, while N’Gog will be playing for Sunderland.
The Merseyside club have been pursuing the signing of Henderson since last week. Henderson, 20, plays in a central midfield role and has made more than 71 appearances for Sunderland since joining the club in 2008. The English midfielder made his debut for England in the November, 2010 friendly against France where he started the game alongside Steven Gerrard in midfield.
Henderson is definitely a gifted footballer and a rising star in England. He was named Sunderland’s Young Player of the Year for the past two years. And will be leaving this weekend to join the England under-21 team for the European Championships.
