Jordan Henderson has calmed fears at Liverpool football club after committing his future to the Anfield side.

The England midfielder, who has become a key cog in Brendan Rodgers' team will be entering the final-year of his contract at the end of the current campaign and is yet to agree to a new deal with the club.

Earlier in the month, reports suggested that Henderson and his representatives had rejected the club's initial offer of £80,000-a-week pay as they feel that their client is worth much more than the current offer.

Brendan Rodgers will be keen to get the 24-year-old midfielder's contract sorted as he is a vital cog in Liverpool's revival, which saw them go on a 13-match unbeaten run until they were beaten by Manchester United last week.

Henderson has now eased fears around the club after admitting that talks are ongoing and he believes that a contract will be signed soon.

"It's definitely not an issue. I love playing football for Liverpool and I want to be there for many years," Henderson said, as quoted by the Mirror.

"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."

The England international insists that he is only focused on doing his best on the pitch and wants to leave the contract discussions to his agents and the club.

"All I want to do is my best for club and country. It's definitely not a distraction. For me playing football is all I've ever wanted to do and contracts and stuff can be sorted out by clubs and agents," the former Sunderland midfielder explained.

"Hopefully this can get done soon. All I want to do is concentrate on my football and not let this get in the way," Henderson concluded.
