Henderson, 24, came through the ranks at his hometown club Sunderland and spent four months on loan in the Midlands before he broke a bone in his foot.
He said: "I was playing every week for a good club. They were doing very well in the Championship and I loved every minute of it.
"I felt it helped me progress as a player.
"I've been given extra responsibility at my club and now with England, too.
"I'm getting older and I need to try and help the younger lads who are coming through."
