Celtic ace Jack Hendry has agreed to join Manchester City’s sister club Melbourne City, with a deal potentially set to be confirmed today, according to The Sun.
It appears the 24-year-old had admirers from English Championship sides too but he preferred a deal with an Australian club.
The Scotland international was struggling for game time at Celtic Park, making only one appearance for the first team this season.
And that was only a substitute appearance lasting for 11 minutes in the Scottish League Cup game when Celtic inflicted a crushing defeat to Partick Thistle.
It is understood that he could even make his debut for the Australian A-League against Perth Glory next weekend.
The Celtic man will be hoping to get regular game time in Australia after failing to make an impression in Scotland.
Melbourne are currently 11 points behind league leaders Sydney FC and are placed second at the table.
Celtic have had issues at centre half since the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Dedryck Boyata left Parkhead, with Hendry one of those players to fail to take advantage of first-team chances.
The defender has proven himself to be error prone and leaving the Hoops for a new challenge appears the best course of action for all parties.
