The 29-year-old walked away with the prestigious award ahead of Sterling and Kane, who ended second and third respectively, after a year in which he reached his 50th appearance for the Three Lions and helped the nation qualify for the 2020 UEFA European Championship.

Henderson, who is also a former captain of the national team, made seven appearances throughout the calendar year and featured prominently for Gareth Southgate's side as they ended third in the inaugural edition of the UEFA Nations League.

Upon claiming the award, the Reds skipper became the only player in the nation's history to have claimed both the U21 Player of the Year and Senior Player of the Year awards, having won the former back in 2012. 

The latest accolade crowns a remarkable year for the former Sunderland midfielder, who also captained his club to victory in the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
