English club Liverpool have reportedly agreed to accept Reds captain Jordan Henderson to join Saudi Arabian football club Al Ittifaq during the current summer transfer period.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the player transfer market in Europe, wrote on his Twitter account that an agreement was concluded between Liverpool and the Saudi club Al-Ittifaq a week ago, and the formula for signing Henderson’s contracts with a transfer to the Saudi club for a period of 3 years is currently being agreed.
Romano indicated that English football legend Steven Gerrard, manager of Saudi club Al Ittifaq, was waiting for Henderson to arrive once the deal was finalized.
The Athletic journalist David Ornstein confirmed that Jordan Henderson is ready to leave the Liverpool camp in Germany at any time to sign a contract with Al-Ettifak and complete the rest of the procedures.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, during press statements, commented on Henderson’s move to the deal, saying: “There’s nothing to say right now. Until the issues are finally settled, there is no need to talk about them.
He added: “In terms of the media, they can speculate which is more fun, but if I say something, it’s all over and in the end all these decisions are made by me because I have a lot of respect for the players.”
Jordan Henderson, 33, is currently at Liverpool in Germany, which is in a 10-day camp in preparation for the new football season (2023-2024), and is expected to be out of the Reds’ friendly against Fürth next Monday.
