Jordan Brian Henderson (born 17 June 1990) is an English international footballer who plays as a midfielder for Liverpool.

Liverpool career

Henderson signed for Liverpool from Sunderland on 9 June 2011 for a fee in the region of £16-20 million. After joining Liverpool Henderson said "I'm over the moon, overjoyed to be here and I'm really looking forward to it."

On 8 July 2011 Henderson was handed the number 14 jersey previously worn by Milan Jovanovic and Xabi Alonso.

Henderson made his debut for Liverpool in a friendly on 23 July 2011 in the 0-3 defeat against Hull. His competitive debut came on 13 August 2011 against his former club - Sunderland - where Liverpool achieved a 1-1 draw.

He scored his first Liverpool goal against Bolton on 27 August 2011 with a curling left foot shot into the top corner of the net. Henderson started each of Liverpool's first eight competitive games of the 2011-12 season, however he lost his place with the return to fitness of Steven Gerrard, but still appeared frequently as a substitute. He gave a particularly impressive cameo appearance against Manchester United at Anfield as he twice almost won the match for Liverpool. He first forced a fine diving save from United 'keeper David De Gea after firing a neat lob, then headed narrowly over in the dying minutes of the match which finished 1-1.

Henderson regained his place in the starting XI during the winter as Gerrard was ruled out with an ankle infection and Lucas Leiva sustained a serious knee injury. His performances garnered praise from manager Kenny Dalglish and other pundits as he began to grow into his central midfield role with some competent and mature displays.
