Jordan Henderson Al-Ettifaq Transfer

Jordan Henderson, a player who once shared the field with Steven Gerrard at Liverpool after his arrival in 2011, has now seen a deal for his transfer to Saudi Arabian team, Al-Ettifaq, finalized.

The Reds have, in principle, approved the deal which amounts to £12m in addition to various add-ons. Henderson was present at the club’s training camp in Germany but didn’t participate in the opening pre-season match against Karlsruher.

The English midfielder, now 33, still has a remaining contract with Anfield spanning two years. This development comes after Al-Ettifaq hired Steven Gerrard, the ex-Liverpool captain, as their new manager.

Following Henderson’s deal, Liverpool fielded a £40m bid from Al-Ittihad for Fabinho, another midfielder on their squad. Fabinho, unlike Henderson, hasn’t made the trip to Germany, his future hanging in the balance.

Several notable players have transferred to Saudi Arabian teams this summer, such as former Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema, previous Chelsea player N’Golo Kante, ex-Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino who signed with Al-Ahli, and Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez who’s rumored to be in talks with the same team.

In 2011, Henderson arrived at Liverpool from Sunderland through a £20m contract. Throughout the last season, he played 43 matches for the Reds during a notably tough campaign which ended with them securing the fifth position in the Premier League, thus missing out on the Champions League.

Overall, Henderson has made 491 appearances for Liverpool, scored 33 goals, and provided 58 assists. He was the captain of the team when Liverpool clinched the Champions League title in 2019, followed by the Uefa Super Cup and Fifa Club World Cup in the same year.

Henderson also led the team in the 2019-2020 Premier League season to secure their first English top-flight title in 30 years. Other accolades for Henderson with Liverpool include winning the FA Cup in 2022 and the League Cup in 2012 and 2022.
