Jordan Henderson has reached an agreement in principle with Liverpool to sign a new long-term contract.
That’s according to the Athletic, who says he has been offered an improved three-year deal with the option of a fourth based on his number of appearances.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said on Friday he was confident a new deal would be reached to keep the club’s current longest-serving player.
“It is important but it will happen,” Klopp told reporters ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League win over Norwich.
Reports suggested that talks had stalled over a new deal for Liverpool’s captain back in July and not extending would mean he could leave the Merseyside club in the current transfer window or as a free agent next summer.
Georginio Wijnaldum left Liverpool to join Paris Saint-Germain in June as a free agent after he turned down a Liverpool extension.
PSG, Atletico Madrid and Roma have all been linked to the 31-year-old in recent months.
