New Anfield ace proud to be at the court of King Kenny

Liverpool new boy Jordan Henderson insists he will play wherever Kenny Dalglish wants him to when he pulls on the famous red shirt next season.

The 20-year-old put pen to paper on a 'long-term' deal with the Reds last week before jetting off to Denmark for the under-21 European Championships, and is desperate to hit the ground running at Anfield next season.

"I spoke to the manager and he said I can play in the team in a few positions," said the young midfielder.

"I'm not bothered, I want to make sure I'm in the starting 11 and play regular football. If I could choose I would play centre midfield. But I like playing anywhere, and I just want to start."

With Liverpool reported to have paid a fee close to £20 million to secure the services of Henderson, it will mean the former Sunderland man will have great expectations placed on his shoulders.

However, Henderson is not daunted by the prospect of making his Anfield bow, but instead feels he can enhance Dalglish's current squad.

"It is [a lot of money], but I don't make the figures up," he added. "It just shows that Liverpool have a lot of faith in me as a player and I will do everything I can and work really hard to repay them.


"Liverpool is a massive club, with a great manager and great players, and obviously I felt as though I could improve there and learn a lot.

"Of course, there will be competition at any big club, but I have to work extremely hard and do everything I can to make sure I start in the team. If I train well and work hard, I'll get my chance and take it. There are a lot of parts of my game I need to work on. I'll do everything I can."
