Kenny Dalglish accepts he is yet to extract the best from Jordan Henderson since he arrived at Anfield in the summer, but has no doubt Liverpool will reap the benefit of his future years.

The 21-year-old England U21 international has struggled to nail down a regular starting position in the Reds side since his £20million move from Sunderland.

The size of the fee and the lack of a consistent position in the team has seen the midfielder struggle at times to display his best form, but Dalglish insists it's only a matter of time before Henderson comes good.

"I don't know his best position yet - but I know his best club and that's this one," said the Liverpool boss. "We just want him to play and enjoy playing.


He's a talented footballer with a great future in front of him and we are just delighted he chose to come here. He'll be here for a long, long time and he's going to be a tremendous asset for us."

Henderson has had to settle for a place on the bench in Liverpool's last two Barclays Premier League encounters against Everton and Manchester United.

But the suspension of fellow midfielder Lucas Leiva for the game against Norwich on Saturday, could well provide him with a route back into the team.

"He's a young boy who has come down from Sunderland and is starting to settle in really well now," Dalglish added.

"He's another option for us in midfield this weekend. I've just got to make the right decision."
