Celtic have reached an agreement with Derk Boerrigter for an early termination of the midfielder’s contract, according to the Scottish Sun.

Boerrigter’s current deal expired in the summer. He’s been absent from the Celtic first team since the beginning of last season.

His initial signing from Ajax appeared quite a coup as he’s largely impressed with the Dutch side. However, the one caveat was his injury issues, and so this proved the case as he struggled to get a run of games in the side before breaking down.

Celtic spent this entire season trying to off-load their dud signing and finally seem to have brokered a deal.

Across his entire Celtic career, Boerrigter amounted 25 appearances, eight starts and one solitary goal - a last minute strike against Aberdeen that put Celtic 2-1 ahead in a match they’d win 3-1. His last ever league appearance came in a victory over St Johnstone. Boerrigter won his side a penalty but was later handed a two-match ban for diving.
