LIAM Henderson is set to team up with World Cup winner Fabio Grosso once more after agreeing a deal to join the coach at Hellas Verona.

The 21-year-old midfielder joined Grosso's Bari in January on a deal until 2020, but his future was thrown into doubt this week when the Serie B club were declared bankrupt and relegated to the fourth tier of Italian football. 

Reports in Italy say that Henderson, who is now a free agent, will continue to work under Grosso next season at the manager's request.
