Jordan Henderson has been voted as Liverpool’s Player of the Month for September.

The 24-year-old midfielder started four of the five matches for the Reds last month and was a consistent figure.

The England international was also made the vice-captain of Liverpool, and he was delighted to have been chosen by the club’s fans as their best player of last month.

‘It's obviously nice to get the Player of the Month award’, Henderson told Liverpool’s official website. ‘I'd like to thank all of the fans that voted and hopefully I can get a few more in the coming months. I much prefer the team ones but it is always nice to get individual ones as well.

‘I can still get better. I can get in the box more and get more goals. I've still got a lot of things to work on in training, improving my all-round game. Hopefully I can continue to do that’.

Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that he is impressed with the ‘attitude and energy’ of his players, and believes that results will improve as the season progresses.

‘We know we'll get better as the season goes on’, he said. ‘There's certainly no crisis. We lost a world-class player in the summer and we brought in a lot of players, and that just takes time to gel.

‘Of course, with less training time to coach the players, you are going straight into the games. But the players here are absolutely magnificent; the attitude and energy that they show here, and their thirst to want to be better, is what gives me the hope that we can really push on’.

Liverpool have been linked with a move for former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes. The Spaniard is currently a free agent and is working on his fitness to earn a contract from the Premier League outfit.

According to Thisisanfield.com, Valdes’s agent Gines Carvajal will fly to England to meet with Liverpool officials to finalise a deal next week.
