Jack Hendry’s move to Oostende looks like being a short one with the Belgian side in line for a quick £3m profit on the deal.

Last summer the defender moved to Oostende having dropped almost out of contention for a place at Celtic.

When Jozo Simunovic was released Stephen Welsh and Hatem Abd Elhamed were looked on as cover with Shane Duffy brought in on loan.

Kris Ajer’s likely departure leaves Celtic short on options in central defence but Hendry won’t be playing any role with Oostende in line for a £3m ‘handling fee’ by transferring the defender on to West Brom.

Discussing Oostende’s smart piece of business, The Sun reports:

The Belgians opted to trigger their option to buy for a reported £1.8million. Reports several months ago suggested Oostende wanted to sign Hendry with several Premier League clubs said to be interested.

But the Daily Mail are reporting that they are ready to make a quick-fire profit and the Baggies are hoping to land the Ayrshire lad for £5million. Albion’s new boss Valerien Ismael was interested in signing Hendry when he was Barnsley gaffer.

Hendry’s form at Oostende brought him from the wilderness into the Scotland squad for the European Championships where he started the opening match against the Czech Republic.

After being on the bench against England he slipped right out of contention against Croatia with Scott McKenna coming on as a substitute while Declan Gallagher was left on the bench.
