Just a quickie to start the day with the news that, first thing this morning Liverpool have had a bid for Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson accepted, with those fine folk over at the Press Association reporting that the deal is worth somewhere in the region of £20 million – £16 million in cold, hard cash and a David N’Gog thrown in for good measure.
A brief statement on the Sunderland website reads:
“A fee has been agreed with Liverpool for Jordan Henderson and he travels to Anfield today with the club’s blessing.”
Still seems like an awful lot of money for a player Liverpool don’t really need to us, though the fact that King Kenneth is willing to ditch N’Gog may hint at the possibility of a shiny new striker washing up at Anfield before August is out – young Connor Wickham perhaps?
Any thoughts on the Henderson deal peeps?
