CELTIC are poised to cash in on Jack Hendry – for the SECOND time in a matter of weeks.
The Scotland international defender has agreed a £1.75million switch to Belgian outfit KV Oostende after a successful season on loan, as CQN reported yesterday.
However, it is extremely doubtful if Hendry, who cost Brendan Rodgers £1.2million when he joined from Dundee in January 2018, will be playing too many games for his new club.
KNOCK ON WOOD…Jack Hendry thumps a shot off the Czech Republic crossbar during Scotland’s 2-0 Euros loss at Hampden.
The 26-year-old centre-half is poised for a quickfire transfer with newly-demoted West Brom and Bundesliga clubs, with Hertha Berlin reported to be among them, ready to make a move in this transfer window. The valuation of the player, who was involved in Scotland’s opening Euro Finals encounter against Czech Republic earlier this month, has now soared to £5million, according to the Sunday Mail.
The Hoops hierarchy have inserted a sell-on clause in his contract and can expect another cash windfall when he is on his travels again.
Hendry failed to settle at Parkhead after his shift from Dens Park and was used sparingly by Rodgers and Neil Lennon in his time in Glasgow.
