Jordan Henderson has confirmed he is leaving Liverpool after 12 years, before an expected move to Saudi Arabian side Al-Ettifaq.

The 33-year-old midfielder looks set to move to the Saudi Pro League in a deal worth £12m plus add-ons.

Posting on his Instagram account, Henderson said: “Just know, I will always be a Red, until the day I die.”

Henderson captained Liverpool to their first Premier League title in 30 years in 2020.

The England international also lifted the Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup, Super Cup and Club World Cup during his time on Merseyside.

Henderson will link up again with ex-Liverpool captain and former team-mate Steven Gerrard, who is manager of Al-Ettifaq.

He has been at the Reds since joining from Sunderland in a deal worth £20m in June 2011 and has made 492 appearances, scoring 33 goals and registering 57 assists.

Speaking in the video filmed at Anfield, Henderson said: “I’m not sure I have any words to sun up how I’m feeling right now.

“I’m in the dressing room for the last time so as you can imagine, it’s very emotional.”
