Hull City midfielder to weigh up his options in the summer

Hull City captain Markus Henriksen will weigh up his options over the summer, according to Hull Live.

The midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and will keep his options open regarding the next stage of his career.

Nigel Adkins made Henriksen the Tigers’ captain over the summer after Michael Dawson departed for fellow Championship side Nottingham Forest.

Henriksen, who is 26 years-old, will currently be fully focused on leading his side to survival this season after a difficult start to the campaign.

He is on international duty at the moment with Norway, of whom he has represented at all youth levels from U15 to U23 in the past and who he now has made 44 caps for at senior level.

Henriksen started his career at Rosenburg and broke into their first-team as a youngster. He went onto play 116 games for them in the Norweigen Tippeligaen, scoring 23 goals before being snapped up by Dutch Eredivisie side AZ Alkmaar in 2012 for a fee of around €2 million.

He became a key player for AZ in his four seasons there. Henriksen then made the move to the Premier League in August 2016 when he joined Hull City, initially on loan before it was made permanent in the January for £4.5 million.

Henriksen couldn’t prevent the Tigers from slipping into the Championship in his first season but he has established himself as a first-team regular at the KCOM Stadium since then. However, Hull could run the risk of losing him for nothing in the summer now.
