On this day in 2011: Liverpool sign Jordan Henderson from Sunderland
Liverpool signed Jordan Henderson from Sunderland on this day in 2011.
The deal for the 20-year-old England midfielder was reported to be worth 16million.
Obviously its hard to leave your local club. Im a Sunderland lad, Ive supported them all my life, Henderson told the Liverpool website.
But this is a massive opportunity for me. Im really excited by it.
Coming to a massive club like Liverpool, there is always going to be competition.
Hopefully I can keep working hard, keep improving, and get my chance on the pitch.
