Any club would be daft to pay that off the back of one decent season in the Championship two seasons ago and four or five good months in the PL. He's still young though so maybe he can keep it going but I'm far from convinced.
My son’s a Bournemouth fan so I may be being slightly biased. He thinks he’s amazing. If he does continue his current form those figures are right. I agree though at the moment it is just a good run of form.

He’s always been a blatant shithouse.

Ajax after Henderson now apparently but his club don't want to let him leave on loan. Perhaps he sees himself going to Ajax and growing the game there?

We can't just keep buying players that fit the mould of just legging it about working hard.

Sooner or later we are gonna need to add quality.

There's the tiny issue of Man City wanting a crazy loan fee AND his silly wages covering. Weren't they quoting something like £7.5m as a loan fee or something fucking ludicrous like that.

Yeah, if that's true like then may as well leave it.

We still might end up having a big sale this window which might make it worth a punt, but with all what's surrounding the club at the moment I doubt anything will be happening at all this window.

Haha, what a wanker, Henderson's managed to get his contract terminated. Makes him look an even bigger prick after trying to justify the move.

Gets even better. What a genuine cunt he actually is.

Jordan Henderson has not received a penny from Saudi club after deferring wages to avoid UK tax
Exclusive: With a move to Ajax possible, Henderson may never be paid for the six months that he played at Al-Ettifaq

Jordan Henderson has not yet earned a penny from his short time in Saudi Arabia having deferred salary payments, Telegraph Sport has learnt.

Former Liverpool midfielder Henderson has travelled to Europe to complete a move to Ajax having agreed with the Saudi Pro League club Al-Ettifaq a mutual cancellation of the three-year contract he signed in the summer.

Henderson’s U-turn is set to cost him millions and Telegraph Sport can now reveal that he has left Saudi without earning any of his £350,000-a-week wages to date, with sources close to the player believing he may never be paid for the six months he spent at Al-Ettifaq.

The key reason for the deferral is not entirely clear, but Telegraph Sport understands that it was in part so that he could return to Britain to play for England in the short term, unrestricted by the time limitations placed on those without UK taxpayer status.

Under UK law, an individual is considered resident for tax purposes if they spend more than 90 days in the country.

Henderson is understood to have been advised that up to the end of last year, pro rata he must have spent no more than 21 days in Britain if he wished to be considered non-resident for tax reasons. That limitation in spending time in Britain was the key part of his initial decision to defer any salary payments. Returning to Britain with his young family to visit friends and relatives was also part of the consideration.

As a result, Henderson had not been paid any of the £350,000-per-week salary that he agreed in July. Now that he is leaving Saudi after just six months, it is quite possible that he never will. Sources close to the player say that the expectation is that he will not be paid for the six months he spent in the Saudi Pro League.

On Tuesday morning, he agreed with Al-Ettifaq executives that his contract would be cancelled by mutual agreement and he flew back to Britain. He has an agreement in principle with Ajax to join the Eredivisie club although as of 3pm on Wednesday no announcement had been made as to whether that deal had been concluded.

It is expected that Henderson will explain his reasons behind leaving Saudi at some point although it is clear now that the former Liverpool captain was unhappy with life at the club in the city of Dammam on the Gulf coast.

Saudi Pro League sources insist they do not hold a grudge against Henderson over his departure understand his reasons for wanting to return so quickly.

There is also no suggestion that Henderson’s U-turn will be held against other English players by the Saudi Pro League and its leading clubs.

Sources expressed fears to Telegraph Sport that Saudi clubs would be wary of trying to sign the top English players in future because of Henderson’s decision to quit so quickly.

But this has been dismissed by insiders at the top of the Saudi Pro League, who described the Henderson situation as “small teething problems” and reacted with horror at the suggestion that English players could be snubbed as a result.

So the only ones to benefit from this are Liverpool, getting £12m for someone who goes on free 6 months later.

Nothing fishy there at all.
