Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson breaks silence amid Saudi Pro League transfer speculation

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson breaks silence amid Saudi Pro League transfer speculation

He's sent a message out to fans.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has broken his silence amid speculation linking him with a move to Saudi Arabia.

Henderson, 33, still has two years left on his deal at Anfield but has an uncertain future.

He faces increased competition for a spot in Jurgen Klopp's starting line-up following the summer signings of Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton and Dominik Szoboszlai from RB Leipzig.

Liverpool continue to be linked with further midfield signings, including Southampton's Romeo Lavia, leading to speculation that Henderson could be sold this summer.

One club reportedly interested in the England international is Saudi Pro League side Al Ettifaq, who recently appointed former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard as their new head coach.

According to 90 min, Gerrard is keen to bring Henderson and another of his former Liverpool teammates Philippe Coutinho to Saudi Arabia.

Gerrard has been promised 'huge' funds in order to rebuild an Al Ettifaq side which finished seventh last season.

Henderson breaks his silence amid Saudi speculation

It is unclear whether Henderson would consider a move to the Saudi Pro League, even if he was offered the huge wages on offer in the Gulf nation.

The England international was critical of neighbouring Qatar’s human rights record ahead of the World Cup, with Saudi Arabia accused by Amnesty International of similar human rights violations.

And despite his age, Henderson was an important player for Liverpool last season – playing 41 times in all competitions.

The former Sunderland midfielder has now broken his silence over his future and appears determined to remain with Liverpool.

On Tuesday evening, he took to Instagram to post images of himself preparing for the new season with an individual training session, alongside the caption: "Don't dream of winning. Train for it!"

Liverpool players will start to return to the club on Saturday to officially begin pre-season training.

Henderson will be one of the last to return after the summer break due to his involvement in England's Euro 2024 qualifying matches against Malta and North Macedonia in June.

However, he is expected to be part of the squad that travels to the Black Forest to face Bundesliga 2 clubs Karlsruher SC and Greuther Furth, with the first pre-season friendly taking place on July 19.
