Jordan Henderson has posted a farewell message to Liverpool fans ahead of his move to Al-Ettifaq.
The Reds skipper has been extensively linked with a move to the Saudi Pro League outfit in recent weeks. According to Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool are set to receive £12 million plus add-ons for the midfielder, who has apparently penned a three-year deal with the Steven Gerrard-led side.
Henderson has now confirmed his exit by posting an emotional farewell video for his fans on Instagram. The post can be viewed in full below:
The caption read:
“It’s hard to put these last 12 years into words and it’s even harder to say goodbye. I will always be a Red. Until the day I die. Thank you for everything. You’ll never walk alone. Jordan ❤️”
‘Hendo’ joined Liverpool 12 years ago from Sunderland for a £20 million fee. After having a topsy-turvy time in the initial seasons, he established himself as a regular starter for the club.
Henderson registered 33 goals and 61 assists in 492 career appearances for Liverpool. He won every major trophy on offer after taking over the captain’s armband in 2015 following Gerrard’s exit.
