Usually when you see something like this its a player leaving like Kennedy for example, that is moving on.

But this is a strange one with Aberdeen signing arguably our 4 th choice striker on loan..bit weird.

Aye not sure about this either wonder if it’s a loan with an option to buy at the end of it

Totally agree - strange - nonetheless hope the usual clause about not playing against the parent club is in place!

I am an optimist.

Not according to what CD said in recent press conference 

Rates him highly and will be used next season  but needs games he cannot give him just now

I don’t get this move .. surely if a player is needing games they go down a division 

I think Saints have agreed to the loan with the hope Aberdeen will sign him and we get a nominal fee! 

Saints aren’t a future club you need to keep your assets and make the most of them before they inevitably move on.  Doubt he’ll be back :sad:

You could write the script with this one... hope I am wrong

Derek McInnes is no dummy so would not be taking Callum Hendry if he didn’t rate him. I am disappointed that he has left, but glad it’s just a loan deal. As I would be sick as a parrot if he starts scoring goals and we had let him go for free.

I remember reading that Willie Cunningham said he tricked Bobby Brown when signing Alex Ferguson from Saints in swap for Dan Maclindon , by mentioning other players first then saying oh well I would take Ferguson then as if he was doing Saints a favour. The upshot of this was he seemed to score against us every time we played Dunfermline including a hat trick at Muirton. Then sold to Rangers for £66,000.

Dan Maclindon scored Saints goal in 9 - 1 defeat to Rangers then a few weeks later transferred to Partick Thistle..

I can’t see why Aberdeen have gone for this....unless we’re getting someone from them in return?

McInnes is genuinely a big fan of Callum Hendry. The Callum Hendry deal was almost over the line in 2017 when McInnes made tentative enquiries about his potential availability.


Callum has seen Guy Melamed cement his place ahead of him in the pecking order, chapped on the gaffers door and said, “stick me on the loan market if I’m not in your plans this season.”

Callum says “aye, no bother”, someone tells McInnes, McInnes needs a striker. Done deal!

Hendrys said Matty Kennedy played a part in taking him to Aberdeen, so maybe him who alerted McInnes?

Hendry yo the Dons is a brilliant deal. At the moment he is fourth choice for us but he's young and could be a great player for us after a loan period. If he gets game time with a team above us in the league that has to be good. Delighted with this.
