Liverpool Transfer News: Is Henderson Destined For 'Hero' Status At Anfield?

June 9, 2011 By Keesh Sundaresan
Liverpool might have just captured the next KOP Hero in the form of Jordan Henderson. Well, Ronnie Whelan certainly thinks so.
Liverpool are poised to officially announce their signing of 20 year-old England starlet Jordan Henderson for a £20 transfer from Sunderland in the next 24 hours or so. The Black Cats officially announced that they had reached an agreement with Liverpool and Henderson is expected to sign the deal before he links up with the England under-19 Squad at Denmark.

Following that imminent move, former Liverpool great Ronnie Whelan has expressed his satisfaction at this transfer deal, claiming that Henderson could very well be the next KOP hero.

Whelan told the Liverpool Echo: “He looks a very good player, and he is talked about as being one of England's best young talents, so it appears to be a good signing by Liverpool.

“He seems to have all the attributes needed to be a good central midfield player. He has good stamina and energy, he passes the ball well and his control is good. He looks an all-round player, and will add plenty to Kenny's squad.

“The key now for a young player like Jordan is how he handles the step up to a big club. Liverpool is not like Sunderland, they are expected to win every week, and so it remains to be seen how he handles the pressures that come with that.”

Henderson is likely to be the first of many upcoming signings at Anfield with the likes of Scott Dann and Charlie Adam also being linked with a move to the Reds. What are your opinions on this? Henderson to be the next star? Leave a comment!
