Henriksen has been exiled from the club this season, having not played a competitive fixture for the Tigers since the final league game of the 2018/19 campaign.
Despite captaining the side in every league game he played last season, he has not played under Grant McCann this season and has been essentially cast out from the playing squad as he seeks to resolve his future.
The Norwegian reportedly wanted to move clubs in the summer with the club keen for him to do so, but no transfer materialised leaving him in a state of purgatory waiting for January to roll around before trying again.
He was stripped of his role as captain in the summer and now he appears to be on the path to his exit as he trains with the club where he spent his academy days.

After his summer move failed to come to fruition, Henriksen rejected Hull’s offer of a new contract in an attempt to force a move to a new club in the winter transfer window.
Can you name these Hull City players’ nationalities?
It does appear that Henriksen’s future is closer to being resolved as he trains with his boyhood club, but it has left Hull light in midfield with Kevin Stewart ruled out until the end of February with a broken metatarsal.
Hull will most likely look to strengthen and finally replace last season’s captain, especially with injuries not helping their cause.
Henriksen will likely feel a very relieved man that he has finally found a club willing to give him a chance.
