The former Manchester United midfielder struck the winner against Tottenham last week.
"I'm really pleased for 'Jonah'," Henry told the Express & Star. "He has so many different attributes to his game.
"He scores goals, he's creative, a good passer and works really hard.
"He's a really good player but maybe because we're one of the smaller clubs in the league then he doesn't get the hype of the top clubs.
"But if we can sustain a Premier League place maybe then a player like Jonah does get a bigger profile.
"I'm delighted he's back in the team - we've got a good understanding."
