Markus Henriksen’s contract at Hull City expires in 2020 and he’s already turned down an opportunity to sign an extension at the KCOM Stadium.

The midfielder hasn’t featured for the Championship in any competitions this season, but that hasn’t stopped him from representing Norway in the last three international breaks.

His situation is attracting attention from elsewhere and Karadeniz in Turkey reported on November 15th that Trabzonspor have set their sights on the 27-year-old.

A day later, another Turkish outlet Gazeta Damga explained Trabzonspor have taken steps to sign the player in January, but will expect competition from Galatasaray.

Henriksen played the entire match in Norway’s 2-1 win over Malta on Monday and after the tie, the local media asked him about the recent reports linking him to the Süper Lig side.

“I haven’t heard anything,” he said, as quoted by Dagbladet.

“We have to wait and see what happens. There has been a great deal of interest right now, so we’ll see what’s best for me and my family. I hope and believe that it can be something very good.

“I am 27 years old and have started to become the football player I wanted to be. I want to play in a good league for a few more years.”

A move to Trabzonspor would see Henriksen play alongside his compatriot Alexander Sørloth, who is on loan from Crystal Palace. The striker explained he’s be glad to share the dressing room with the Hull City man.

“I don’t want to talk too much about rumours. The only thing I would say is that I am a very good friend with Markus. It would be nice to play with him,” he added.
