Jordan Henderson has completed his move to Liverpool and becomes the reds’ first summer signing.

Liverpool have been chasing Henderson for several weeks and have finally captured the man that manager Kenny Dalglish identified as his number one transfer target.

Liverpool have not revealed the fee but Director of Football Damien Comolli said that the fee was not the £20 million that has been reported in the press in recent days. Speaking of the signing he said: ”He has got all the skills technically that we needed,” he added. “He’s good with the ball, he’s creative, he’s got good passing, he’s physically very good.

“That’s everything we wanted in a midfielder and he’s versatile as well. For manager Kenny Dalglish he will be the player we wanted.”

The length of the contract hasn’t been revealed but the club have said it is a ‘long-term deal’. Speaking to Liverpool’s official website Henderson said: ”I’m over the moon, overjoyed to be here and I’m really looking forward to it,” Henderson told the Liverpool website.

“Obviously it’s hard to leave your local club. I’m a Sunderland lad, I’ve supported them all my life.

“But I’m really looking forward to the future now and obviously this is a massive opportunity for me. I’m really excited by it.”

Asked about the prospect of lining up in the same midfield as Steven Gerrard, he said: ”(Gerrard) is one of the best players in the world, you want to be playing with him and training with him to try and improve yourself as a player. Hopefully I can learn a lot from him.”

“I’ll donate my ribs”, “He has 18 ribs” – Some Liverpool fans relieved star player doesn’t have major injury

Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Southampton was marred by an injury to Virgil van Dijk. The Dutch defender had to be replaced in the second half with Joe Gomez coming on.

Van Dijk looked exceptional at the back once again as he had a number of interceptions and clearances. The former Southampton man looked comfortable with Joel Matip but Gomez had to take over from the Dutchman.

Liverpool’s next clash is against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup and we shouldn’t risk playing the defender.

The 27-year-old had a bruised rib, as per a release, from the club and Jurgen Klopp claimed the defender got hit there again.

“He already had a bruise in the ribs before the PSG game, which is very uncomfortable and today he got another hit there.

“It should be absolutely OK, hopefully. I didn’t hear anything different.”

This would come as great news for the Liverpool fans and their relief was plastered all over Twitter.

Liverpool granted permission to host music concerts at Anfield

Liverpool’s plans to host major music concerts for close to 50,000 people have been accepted at Liverpool Town Hall, according to Liverpool Echo.

The Reds were dealt a blow when their plans to host other events at Anfield were shot down by the Planning Committee. Although Liverpool have received approval, certain changes need to be made, as per the report.

The report adds that a number of residents raised issues regarding noise, lack of parking and anti-social behaviour. In response, Liverpool decided to reduce music events from 10 to 6 and accepted a two-year temporary license.

Chief Operating Officer Andy Hughes further shared plans to create a community fund, which would be raised via parking fares, to help the residents around Anfield.

Another measure includes the appointment of a “dedicated local resident liaison officer”, who will deal with any issues residents might face during the events.

The report adds that there were objections to the proposals, with some wanting the plans to be put on hold until we made life easier for the neighbours.

However, the Reds were granted permission on a temporary basis and will be able to host combat sports at the stadium from next summer.

This should come as great news for the club as we must maximize our revenue from Anfield. The stadium isn’t used much after the season is done but if we host some big fights and music events, it will only help the club’s finances.

The youngster joins a host of keepers at Liverpool and should provide some competition to Kamil Grabara and Caoimhin Kelleher.

It will take some time before we get to see the Guyana keeper come out for the first-team but some Liverpool fans were excited with our new signing.
