Henderson in a hurry to join Liverpool

Liverpool and Jordan Henderson want his switch to Anfield completed by Wednesday.
That's the day the Sunderland midfielder flies to Denmark with the England squad for the Under-21 European Championship, and he does not want concerns about his future to be a distraction during the tournament.
The only thing stopping Henderson becoming Kenny Dalglish's first summer signing is his fee and Liverpool are confident of reaching a compromise with Sunderland after increasing their offer to £15million - just £3m short of the asking price.
Dalglish does not want Henderson's transfer dragging on into next month and is keen to have him at Melwood for the first day of Liverpool's pre-season training.
The Reds have also made an inquiry for Wigan's unsettled winger Charles N'Zogbia because they are worried Manchester United will beat them to Aston Villa's Ashley Young.
N'Zogbia is refusing to sign a new deal at the DW Stadium and Liverpool feel they could land him for less than the Latics' £8m asking price as he has just one year left on his contract.
