Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has reportedly agreed a new long-term deal with the Reds.

The England midfielder is set to put pen to paper on a lucrative new deal worth around £100,000 a week and will keep him at Anfield until the summer of 2020, according to the Daily Mail.

Henderson has 14 months remaining on his current deal and his representatives have been in discussions with the club since the start of the campaign.

Earlier in the campaign, reports had suggested the player rejected Liverpool's opening offer of £80,000 a week, alerting rival clubs to his availability. But the midfielder quashed all the speculation after stating his desire to remain at the Merseyside club for the foreseeable future.

"It's definitely not an issue. I love playing football for Liverpool and I want to be there for many years," Henderson had said earlier in the season. "In terms of my contract, I think everybody else will make a big deal of it. But, for me it's just letting my agent and the club talk, and whenever it gets sorted it gets sorted."

This will come as a big boost to manager Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool following their disappointing exit at the hands of Aston Villa in the FA Cup semi-finals.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who was signed from Sunderland by former manager Kenny Dalglish, has been the most improved player under Rodgers's reign and has clearly been one of the most impressive players this season, with six goals and eight assists in the league.

Henderson becomes the third Liverpool star to commit his long-term future to the club, joining Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho, who extended their stay earlier in the season. The Three Lions midfielder is also in the running to take over the captaincy following Steven Gerrard's departure in the summer.
