I don't know of a command that does this.

The last refile location is stored in org-bookmark-names-plist. The
(lightly tested) function below uses that information to create a link
to the refiled heading.

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (defun org-refile-and-link ()
    "Refile heading, adding a link to the new location.
  Prefix arguments are interpreted by `org-refile'."
    (when (member current-prefix-arg '(3 (4) (16)))
      (user-error "Linking is incompatible with that prefix argument"))
    (let ((heading  (org-get-heading t t))
          (orig-file (buffer-file-name)))
      (call-interactively #'org-refile)
      (let* ((refile-file
               (assoc (plist-get org-bookmark-names-plist :last-refile)
             (same-file (string= orig-file refile-file))
             (link (if same-file
                       (concat "*" heading)
                     (concat refile-file "::*" heading)))
             (desc heading))
        (open-line 1)
        (insert (org-make-link-string link desc)))))
