JORDAN HENDERSON is expected to officially sign a £100,000-a-week five-year-deal with Liverpool on Thursday, according to The Independent.
And the newspaper says Jordon Ibe and Martin Skrtel are also expected to sign new contracts soon. The Liverpool Echo reported earlier in the day that Skrtel said: “I am not leaving anywhere. Not to Wolfsburg nor to Naples.”
His agent Karol Csonto said: “The only offer which is lying on Martin Skrtel’s table right now is the extension of his contract from Liverpool. We have been working on the details, and we will be finalising it soon.”
The Independent adds that there no plans to spend big in the summer, with free agents James Milner and Danny Ings the top targets to add to Divock Origi.

Depay won’t go away
LIVERPOOL continue to be linked with £25m PSV Eindhoven forward Memphis Depay, the Eredivisie top scorer with 20 goals this season.
LFC scouts have reportedly been spotted watching the player, 21, several times and in an interview with TalkSport, Dutch journalist Marcel van der Kraan said Liverpool are currently the only club in “official talks” for the player, who has also been linked with Manchester United.
More on the player from The Echo here.
Who gives a shirt?
The Reds have renewed their shirt sponsor deal with Standard Chartered for the next three years. Figures for the deal haven’t been released although The Echo says it is likely to be in the region of £30m a season.

100k/ week for a bog average central midfielder. Has to be the position oRogers is most blinkered in, THE most important position for implementing a philosophy and he chooses a player with less vision and guile than Charlie Adam.
Are you serious, bore of lad…
And the Independent is how believable? Because if Milner and Ings are the top targets then there will be no CL football for the 2016-17 season either.
So our most consistent and arguably most important player shouldn’t be rewarded for his increasing importance to the team? He has improved both his goals and assist tally and creates more chances and key passes than anyone else bar Raheem.
How many central midfielders in the league has more goals, assists, key passes, total games and the work rate of two horses? 1or 2? I wouldn’t say three.
Great stuff from SOS, I can’t go to matches because I can never get tickets and it is too expensive so could you explain what a £10 ticket in the context of Hull charging £48
Laughable that this summers best available player is linked to us. No way we get Depay.
He is a better player than Suarez was in Holland. Already a very good player & could become elite. Incredible potential. He’ll be in Manchester come July.
Wages are about to go mad (even more mad) across the world because of new TV deal kickin in in England and the new UCL money for the top clubs. Henderson on 100k per week under these circumstances is correct for me.
But its a bit pathetic that LFC decided to leak news of these contracts right after the weekend we had. Don’t think there is another club that has so many leaks in and around it.
We all know whose injured, whose not, what the team is, if theres been words in the changing room, if players arent happy with contracts offered, if the club isnt happy with a players refusal to sign a new contract etc etc etc within hours or a day or two of these things happening. Club officials, players, the managers, agents – they’re all at it. Its rotten.
Don’t forget we have Origi to look forward to. 9 goals in France this season, he’s going to terrify EPL managers…
