The former Celtic youngster and Hibs favourite was allowed to join the Serie B side after his previous club Bari went into financial meltdown.

The second tier side, who Henderson joined in January, were declared bankrupt and forced to begin life again in Serie D.

Manager Fabio Grosso, an Italian World Cup winner from his playing days, left Bari earlier this summer to join Verona and he’s decided to take Henderson with him.
