Jordan Henderson AGREES Al Ettifaq move

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has reportedly agreed to sign for Al-Ettifaq after a mouthwatering offer from the Saudi Pro League side.

The 33-year-old had been offered at least double the £200 million he earns at Anfield to switch to the Middle East. 

And as reported by Topsix on Wednesday, Henderson was expected to decide in 48 hours if he wants to join Al-Ettifaq and reunite with former team-mate Steven Gerrard.

Football transfer journalist James Pearce of The Athletic has revealed that he has now verbally agreed to the move in principle, and the contract has been agreed upon. 

According to reports, the 33-year-old spoke to manager Jurgen Klopp on Thursday about his role next season, and the coach told him he would have reduced minutes on the pitch so he could leave if the right offer came. As such, the England international has decided it is time to call it quits at Anfield, where he has been since 2011.

Henderson has a contract at Anfield until 2025, and Liverpool will demand a transfer fee for the player. The Reds reportedly want £20m for their captain, but Al-Ettifaq can only pay half of that sum given the huge contract offer on the table for Henderson.
