Liverpool and Sunderland have accepted a £20million deal for Jordan Henderson to move to Anfield on Wednesday.

A fee has been agreed with Liverpool for Jordan Henderson and he travels to Anfield today with the club's blessing, Sunderland confirmed in a statement on the club's website.

Henderson, 20, will head to Anfield as parts of a deal, but the clubs have not yet reached agreement over French striker David Ngog moving in the opposite direction, an official site of Liverpool Football club reported.

Henderson's will be the third major transfer since Dalglish took over as caretaker in January.

Henderson in the past two seasons, has been a cornerstone for Sunderland, and made his senior England debut against France in November last year.

Liverpool is targeting young talent rather than established stars and Henderson is the latest part of the transfer strategy, reports said.

The club is also following Blackpool midfielder- Charlie Adam, 25, Blackburn centre-half Phil Jones, 19, and Ipswich's teenage striker Connor Wickham, 18.
