A report from Hull Live has confirmed that Hull City midfielder Markus Henriksen is currently training with Europa League side Rosenborg, amid his uncertain future with the Championship club.

Question marks have surrounded the future of Hull City midfielder Markus Henriksen for the past few months after a move away from the Tigers in the summer transfer window failed to materialise. Now, with the January transfer window coming closer and closer, it is seeming more and more likely that Henriksen will be leaving the club this winter.

With the Norwegian’s future at the KCOM Stadium uncertain, it has now emerged that Henriksen is currently training in his home country with former club Rosenborg. The Tigers issued a brief statement on the matter, saying:

“The club has given Markus permission to return home to Norway for a period of time.”

Attempts have been made to find a resolution for Henriksen’s future this year. Both the player and the club tried to complete a transfer in the summer transfer window but it was to no avail, and Hull City offered him a new contract, which he chose to reject.

Henriksen has not featured once so far this season and has not been included in any of Grant McCann’s matchday squads. The 27-year-old has been with Hull City since the January transfer window of 2017, signing from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar. In his time with the club, Henriksen has played 92 times, scoring five goals and providing a total of eight assists along the way.
