Fulham and Newcastle United are both keen on signing 33-year-old former Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson in the ongoing transfer window.

According to a report by Fichajes, Fulham and Newcastle United are both interested in acquiring the services of Jordan Henderson. The 33-year-old England international wants to leave Saudi Arabia and return to the Premier League in the ongoing window.

Jordan Henderson and his Incredible Liverpool Journey

Henderson made a name for himself at Liverpool and led them to all major titles before parting ways with the club in the summer of 2023. He was appointed the skipper of the Reds after the departure of Steven Gerrard, and he went on to achieve great heights with the club.

After 12 long years at the club, he decided to part ways with them last summer. The 33-year-old made the move to the Middle East and joined the Saudi Pro League club Al-Ettifaq. He is being paid a fortune to play for them and his personal performances have been top-notch.

But, the English international is still not happy in the Middle East because of the controversies surrounding his move, his team’s overall performance and the conditions in that part of the world. As a result, Henderson wants to return to England and is ready to take a massive pay cut.

Which Clubs Want to Sign Jordan Henderson?

With the 33-year-old ready to return to Europe, there are quite a few clubs interested in having him at their disposal. Fulham and Newcastle United are both looking to reinforce their midfield in the ongoing transfer window, and they are interested in the former Liverpool midfielder.

Sandro Tonali’s ban has not helped Eddie Howe’s cause and with his team struggling, they want to add more quality to the mix. Newcastle United feel signing the former Liverpool skipper could do wonders for them given the amount of experience he has of playing in the English top flight.

Even the Cottagers want to have more options in the centre of the park. They want depth as well as quality. And, Henderson will surely cover all bases. However, signing the former Liverpool captain won’t be that easy as he is Al-Ettifaq’s marquee player, and they will try their best to keep him at club. Meanwhile, a return to Europe at this stage will help Jordan Henderson make a case for his place in the England squad at the Euros next summer.
