“We can trigger the option whenever we want to trigger it. We’ll sit down in the next couple of weeks and get to the nuts and bolts of them, decide what we want to do.”

The Verdict

I think the damage has been done for Henriksen to rectify his Hull City career.

It is apparent that the player sees his future elsewhere and McCann is treating the situation with it’s best intentions, for the player and the whole squad. For instance; if the Hull boss was to play a disinterested player over a committed one, that doesn’t send out the best message to the other 10 players.

Whilst City are losing a leader in the dressing room, Henriksen remains on a Premier League contract and in similar fashion to the departure of Kamil Grosicki, the Allam’s will be eager to get another high earner off the wage bill.
