Jordan Henderson signs new long-term contract with Liverpool

The 23 year old was heavily linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer but the Ligue 1 champions weren't willing to let the midfielder leave.

PSG are still hoping to convince Rabiot to stay but Liverpool's interest has increased the chances of his departure.

He claims the Reds are "very keen" on the France global, and Klopp in particular, having attempted to sign him while still manager at Borussia Dortmund.

Liverpool are already blessed with a host of top quality midfielders but Jurgen Klopp, like every good manager should, always has one eye on the future.

The prediction is puzzling to fans owing to the fact that despite the league's infancy, Liverpool sit atop the Premier League table having gained all points from their opening four fixtures after a great start to the season.

Following the departure of Steven Gerrard to LA Galaxy in 2015, Henderson was rewarded for his emergence as a leader, taking the armband full-time from the Reds great.

The club's website report that he has signed a "new long-term contract" with Liverpool.

This would provide a interesting backdrop to the Reds' clashes with PSG in this season's Champions League, with their first meeting coming at Anfield on September 18.

Despite the fact that Neymar is good friends with former Liverpool man Philippe Coutinho who played for the Merseyside team for five years, when pushed about his answer, he confirmed "No Liverpool".

Last October, in an interview with French radio station RMC, Rabiot said that he grew up loving Liverpool. Have your say below.
