Markus Henriksen was a regular figure in Hull City’s starting XI last season, but things have been different for the Norway international this term.
He has not made an appearance under the guidance of new manager, Grant McCann and Norway’s assistant coach Per Joar Hansen urged the midfielder to consider his future at the KCOM.
According to TV2, Rosenborg have ‘shown interest’ in the 27-year-old and their idea is to sign him on loan, provided no other club come forward.
Henriksen earns €110,000/month at Hull, but Rosenborg will not be able to pay those wages if they sign him.
A berth in the Champions League group stages could help Rosenborg lure him for transfer. They are 2-0 down against Dinamo Zagreb and the second leg will be played in Norway on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Bordeaux saw a €2m bid rejected by the English club in January as the latter’s idea was to get a better offer in the summer, which has not happened so far. The French side are still interested in Henriksen, but are unwilling to meet Hull’s demands.
With less than a week left in the transfer window, it’ll be in everyone’s interest if the player finds a new club.
TV2 explain Henriksen would prefer to take a step further in his career, but if there are no potential offers, Rosenborg remain hopeful of signing him on a loan deal.
However, with less than a year left on Henriksen’s contract, it makes little sense for Hull to sanction a loan deal without at least extending it first.
