Jordan Henderson Talking Personal Terms for Five Year Deal with Liverpool

(Bleacher Report)It looks like the Reds got the first of their men this summer. Sunderland's hometown England U21 starlet Jordan Henderson is apparently on his way to Melwood to complete a medical and finish negotiating personal terms on a five-year deal to see him spend his prime growth years in Liverpool Red.

The deal also includes David Ngog as a make weight. The deal called for a £20m fee for Henderson but the inclusion of £7m valued Ngog will reduce the outplay of Liverpool to £13m and eliviate some wage bill room for the incoming player.

Ngog was a good steward for Liverpool but never looked to have progressed since the young Frenchman was brought in by Rafa Benitez.

Henderson will be the first of many new Reds I expect to see this summer as Fenway Sports Group and leading man John W. Henry and Damien Camolli continue to show they are committed to signing youthful talent to develope an all new Liverpool squad for the future.
