JACK HENDRY is set for a move to the Belgian top division with a loan move to Oostende on a season long loan deal. The 25-year-old has two years remaining on his current deal at Parkhead but has failed to impress during his time at the club.
As reported by the Daily Record, Hendry will sign a deal with the Belgian side today, his second loan deal of the year, having joined Melbourne City on a short-term deal in January.
Hendry joined in January 2018 from Dundee but has faced criticism from supporters for some shaky performances for the Scottish Champions. Brendan Rodgers signed Hendry for north of £2m but has failed to prove himself at Celtic Park.
Oostende could offer Hendry the opportunity to get playing again to either prove himself to Celtic or resurrect his own career, which has stalled since moving to Glasgow.
Hendry arrived for a high fee, which would have added extra pressure to the youngster. Rodgers appeared content asking him to play at right back as well as at the heart of defence; however, he has struggled to justify the price tag – often copping flak when thrown in at the deep end by Rodgers. AEK Athens away was an example of Hendry being put in the deep end and judged harshly after a few games.
