Jordan Henderson is a "driving force in midfield" who would make a huge impact if he joined Tottenham, according to Jamie O'Hara.

But the former Spurs star admits his old club are not "on that level" required to pull off a sensational transfer for the Reds captain.

Henderson, 31, has been linked with a shock Anfield exit after it emerged he is locked in a contract stalemate with club chiefs.

The England international has attracted interest from Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, and – much as he would like to see Henderson at Spurs – O'Hara admits a move to the French capital is far more likely.

"I would love him at Spurs. He is everything we need," O'Hara told talkSPORT of Henderson. "He’s a leader. A character on the pitch. He’s a driving force in midfield. I would absolutely love him to be at Spurs.

"But we cannot get someone like him. I don’t think we are on that level. If he’s leaving Liverpool, he’s going to a PSG. I cannot see him ever going to Spurs."

It appears highly unlikely Liverpool would allow their skipper – who has two years remaining on his deal – to depart for any Premier League rival.

Henderson would be keen to join forces with former Anfield teammate Luis Suarez at Atletico Madrid if the opportunity arose.

PSG, meanwhile, present him with the chance to link up with Georginio Wijnaldum, who joined the Ligue 1 giants on a free transfer from Liverpool this summer.

But former Chelsea and Scotland midfielder Craig Burley insists it is highly unlikely Henderson will leave Liverpool after a decade this summer.

"I don’t see a scenario where he leaves," Burley told ESPN of Henderson. "He’s got such a good rapport with everyone there.

"When he went in there, there were questions about whether he was good enough for Liverpool but he stepped up big time.

"He had a couple of tiffs with the manager but not many. I don’t see where he goes at this stage of his career. It would come down to a few extra thousand here or there. You’d imagine at this time of his career, it’s not about the money."

Henderson arrived at Liverpool from Sunderland for £20million in 2011 and has made 392 appearances for the club.

He inherited the captain's armband from Steven Gerrard in 2015 and has gone on to skipper Liverpool to Champions League and Premier League glory.

Henderson also has League Cup, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup winners' medals in his trophy cabinet from his glittering decade with the Reds.
