CHELSEA boss Mauricio Pochettino has remained coy on a possible move for Jordan Henderson.

Henderson made the headlines over the summer window after he decided that he would leave Liverpool and take the £700,000-a-week offer to make the move to Saudi Arabia.

The former Reds Captain was certain that it was the right move to make at this stage of his career – and many did not feel to angry at the fact that he chose money rather than playing at the very highest level still.

However – Henderson is reportedly unhappy at Saudi Pro League side Al-Ettifaq and is targeting a return to the Premier League in the January transfer window.

It is thought that the 33-year-old England international midfielder, who only left Liverpool six months ago, will consider offers from any Premier League club,

Asked about the midfielder, Pochettino said: “We didn’t talk about names. At the moment, we are not talking about players.

“I saw Behdad [Eghbali], with Paul [Winstanley] and Laurence [Stewart]. I think we are going to have a chat tomorrow. We didn’t talk about names or players. For now, we are focusing on players like Andrey Santos.”

IcChelsea View…

Henderson is a very good leader to have in the side – but he is done at the very highest level of the game and it would be a massive shock to see him make the move to the club.

Plus – he is far too old to make any sort of impact on the side.
