TRANSFER: Jordan Henderson Completes Al Ettifaq Deal

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has completed a move to reunite with Steven Gerrard at Saudi Pro League side Al Ettifaq.

Al Ettifaq, managed by Liverpool legend Gerrard, are believed to be paying Henderson close to £350,000-a-week on a deal until 2026.

Henderson had been at Liverpool since joining from Sunderland in a deal worth £20m in June 2011.

He had played 492 times for the Reds, scoring 33 goals and registering 57 assists, and won seven major trophies with the club.

Henderson’s controversial transfer to Saudi Arabia’s Pro League comes with a fee worth around £13m.

The 33-year-old sought clarity from Jurgen Klopp over how much game time he would get with the Reds next season, before making his decision to leave.

Liverpool are undergoing a midfield rebuild that is not complete yet. They have added Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, with strong interest remaining in Romeo Lavia.
