Norwegian assistant manager, Per Joar Hansen, has stated that he’ll keep a close eye on developments with Hull City midfielder Martin Henriksen after Grant McCann confirmed he doesn’t have a future at the club.
Henriksen was a key part of Nigel Adkins’ side last season, but since McCann has come in, he has failed to get a look in.
The Norwegian will want to find a new club soon, with most European transfer window’s closing on September 2nd.
The 27-year-old will be hoping to find a side that he can get regular playing time in due to his international commitments. With internationals in September, October and November he’ll want to be match fit for the fixtures.
Speaking to TV2, Norwegian assistant manager said: “It’s interesting [Henriksen’s situation at Hull]. Markus has performed at a very high level for us, in virtually all the games he has played.
“When he hasn’t been in Hull’s plans, that could be a two-sided case. He wants out and wishes maybe for other challenges, and Hull then take the consequences of that and bring in replacements. So regarding that we’ll just have to hope it works out for him.”
Henriksen can count himself very unlucky at Hull City this season. The midfielder didn’t have a particularly bad season last year and can count himself very harshly treated not to be in Grant McCann’s plans.
He’s good on the ball and technically he’s one of the best midfielders Hull have had in the Championship. Nigel Adkins rated him very highly but often manager’s can have different opinions.
McCann seems to be settled on his team and there will be no budging. Henriksen will really have to edge towards a move in these next few weeks if he’s to stay pushing for a place in the Norway squad for the upcoming international fixtures.
