Whilst it has seemed the player's preference would have been for a loan move back to Chile, Ferguson believes his acclimatisation will be better served by staying in the Premier League.
"Moving to England initially was obviously strange at first because everything is very different," said Henriquez.
"The weather is a change from what I am used to and the pitches in England are much better because of that, which has helped me to progress my game.
"My parents are over here now, which is nice because I was alone when I first came here.
"I feel it is important to fit in straight away and coming to a club like Wigan, where everyone makes you feel very welcome, makes that a lot easier."
