CELTIC’S forgotten man Kundai Benyu, once so highly rated by Brendan Rodgers, is heading for the Hoops exit.
The 22-year-old midfielder, who was signed by the ex-boss from Ipswich Town in 2017, is poised to join National League side Wealdstone.
Benyu was acclaimed as a top prospect when he arrived at Parkhead after rejecting a contract extension by Portman Road manager Mick McCarthy. He had caught the eye of Rodgers’ scouts during a loan spell at Aldershot.
Now three years and four Celtic appearances later, the Zimbabwean international is on his way, despite still having a year still to run on his contract.
The London-born playmaker has also had loan stints at Oldham and Swedish outfit Helsingborgs as he failed to make an impact in Glasgow.
Now Benyu will relaunch his faltering career in North London.
West London Sport reported Wealdstone had agreed a deal with the player and were now awaiting international clearance.The switch will be rubber-stamped before this evening’s 11pm signing deadline.
