Hull City have announced that they have triggered a clause that will see Markus Henriksen and Will Mannion extend their stay at the club for a further year.
This update will certainly go down well with Hull supporters, many of whom would have been keen to see Henriksen in particular, have his contract extended.
The Norwegian is the club’s captain and has been crucial to their excellent season so far and he’ll be key to the future success of Nigel Adkins’ side.
Henriksen has made 84 appearances for the Tigers since arriving in the summer of 2016 and has established himself as a firm fans favourite amongst supporters.
Whilst Mannion arrived from AFC Wimbledon at a similar time as Henriksen and made his first-team debut in the Carabao Cup last season.
The option to extend both players’ deals would have expired at the end of this week, so the club have wasted no time in securing their long-term futures.
Hull City supporters were evidently delighted with this latest news.

That’s what we like to see!!
