Celtic's Liam Henderson is reportedly the subject of a surprise loan move from Norwegian side Rosenborg.

Celtic’s Liam Henderson is though to be on the brink of a loan move to Norwegian side Rosenborg, according to the Daily Record.

The 18-year-old has featured 15 times for the Bhoys in this campaign but has seen his chances in the first team limited by the arrival of Dundee United pair Stuart Armstrong and Gary Mackay-Steven.

Henderson last started a game for Celtic on January 24th against Ross County and since that time has made seven substitute appearances with 22 minutes the longest he has been brought on for in that time.

Ronny Deila will have undoubtedly seen the potential in the youngster, who is currently in Austria competing in the Under-19 Euro qualifiers where he scored twice in Scotland’s first game against Austria, but missing the following match against Italy through suspension.

The report in the Daily Record says that Deila is in favour of a loan move to his native Norway, and experiencing football in a different country whilst getting valuable games could be very beneficial for Henderson’s development as he struggles to get first team minutes with the Hoops.

The only potential stumbling block is the injury Nir Biton sustained whilst on international duty with Israel, picking up a knock in the loss against Wales, where the influential Celtic midfielder surprisingly started the game on the bench before coming on in the second half.

It is suggested that the move will be discussed within the next 24 hours and it has been made more likely by Rosenborg manager, Kare Ingebrigtsen’s, refusal to rule out any incoming moves to his club.
