Cape Town - Liverpool have declined to speak on reports that midfielder Jordan Henderson has signed a new contract at the club.
According to reports in the English press, Henderson, whose current contract expires in the summer of 2016, has penned a new five-year deal at the Anfield-based club which will earn him a reputed £100,000 per week.
Liverpool have said they will not comment on the stories regarding the 24-year-old England international.
After a shaky start to his Liverpool career, Henderson has become a stalwart for the Reds since he joined them in a £20m transfer deal from Sunderland in 2011.
With current Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard set to move to Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy during the off-season, Henderson - who has led the side when Gerrard has not been playing - has emerged as the favourite to take over the Reds' captaincy.
Liverpool defenders Kolo Toure and Glen Johnson's contracts are also expring at the end of the season and they are expected to move on to other clubs.
