Liverpool’s first splash into the summer transfer window pool was made when a fee was agreed between Liverpool and Sunderland for the services of Jordan Henderson. Obviously Damien and Kenny think very highly of his footballing talents, but what do we really know about him?
Position: Midfielder/Right Wing
Henderson is 20 years old. His birthday is June 17th 1990. Which means he turns 21 on next Friday.
Jordan earned his first team debut with Sunderland at Chelsea on November 2008. He spent a significant portion of his 2009 campaign on loan at championship club Coventry city.
He has hit the back of the net 6 total times with his goal high of 3 coming last year for the black cats.
I am not exactly sure what the plans are for Jordan next season, but I am glad Kenny has his talents at his disposal. Does start on the bench, working his way into the starting 11? Is he our brand new right wing from day one? A midfield role along side Gerrard? Color me Red with excitement for any of those options. What role do you think he takes early on?
