Liverpool defender Martin Kelly believes new signing Jordan Henderson has all the attributes to become a great at Anfield.

Henderson, on international duty with the England Under 21s in Denmark, signed for Liverpool from Sunderland for a reported £16 million last week.

And Kelly, who established himself in the Reds first team last season, believes the young midfielder has the ability to make an even bigger name for himself.

“Jordan's a great lad and really down to earth," Kelly told LFC Weekly. "We get on really well and I'm made up that he's made a mark on Sunderland's first team over the last few seasons. He has everything you need to become a footballer at the highest level.


"The thing I like about him most is that he keeps it nice and simple. You can give him the ball under pressure and he will always keep it, even in the tightest situations.

"He's very patient in possession and if you're under pressure you can give it to him and he'll take the sting out of a game and keep things ticking over.

"He is also the type of player who will weigh in with a number of assists every season and score a few too.

"Jordan is definitely the kind of player who will never let his head drop. He's got a lot of confidence in his own ability."
