- Henderson poised to link up with Steven Gerrard at club
- Midfielder to earn about £700,000 a week in Saudi Arabia
Jordan Henderson is poised to join Steven Gerrard at Al-Ettifaq after Liverpool agreed a fee in principle of £12m plus add-ons for their captain with the Saudi Pro League club.
Henderson was omitted from Liverpool’s first friendly of pre-season on Wednesday, against Karlsruher SC in Germany, after a breakthrough in negotiations. The 33‑year‑old midfielder agreed a contract with Al‑Ettifaq last week and could undergo a medical within days. He will sign a two‑year contract with the option of a third on wages that will dwarf his current £200,000 a week at Liverpool.
