You'll need an internal USB hub. Shouldn't be hard to find with a bit of googling. It's exactly like using an external USB hub except that you want headers instead of type-A or -B ports.

Okay thanks very much I’m guessing that connects to a usb header and basically splits it for additional headers?

Exactly. It's a little more than a Y cable, just like an outboard USB hub is a little bit more than a Y cable. You need a wee bit of active electronics to properly distribute one USB port into two. But yeah, on one end you have a plug that goes into a header, and on the other end you have a couple headers.
