Jordan Henderson hopes to keep his place in the England squad despite his transfer to Saudi Arabia

According to the Telegraph, Jordan Henderson would like to keep his place in the England national team even after his transfer to Al-Ettifaq in Saudi Arabia.

Henderson wants a place in the squad ahead of Euro 2024 and has held talks with England manager Gareth Southgate.

Southgate gave Henderson no assurances that he would make the squad, but also did not inform him that he would not be called up.

Henderson played a key role in England’s squad for the 2022 World Cup and was a major influence on the team as the Three Lions reached the quarter-finals.

The Sunderland-born midfielder was in the England squad after the World Cup and has started three of his last four games.

Henderson has 77 caps for England, scoring three goals. Despite moving to the Gulf state, he would still like to flesh out that record.

The 33-year-old has confirmed his departure from the Merseyside club and traveled to Croatia to join the Al-Ettifaq side.

Al-Ettifaq paid £12million for the midfielder and he signed a three-year contract with astronomical wages.

As captain of Liverpool he won every major trophy and will go down in club history as a memorable player.

Liverpool need to move forward quickly and search for replacements in the market. Fabinho is also set to leave the Reds for the Middle East so they need more signings.

Liverpool are moving forward with a deal for Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia and may have to enter the market for another signing.

They have already signed Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai this summer, but manager Jurgen Klopp wants more midfielders to join them.
