Clubs confirm Henderson deal agreed

Liverpool and Sunderland have both confirmed that a fee has been agreed for 20-year-old Jordan Henderson.

Sunderland released a statement on their official website stating that he now had to discuss personal terms and would be travelling to Merseyside today “with the club’s blessing”.

This was followed soon after by a statement on Liverpool’s official website reporting that Henderson would be on Merseyside today to “discuss personal terms and undergo a medical”.

Neither statement mentioned David Ngog, the player believed to be moving from Anfield to the Stadium of Light as part of the agreed deal. Sunderland are understood to have accepted £13m plus Ngog in a deal which would value the French under-21 player at £7m.
