The 24-year-old flew in from Ireland last night, where he has been on international duty with Martin O'Neill's Republic squad, and is going through a two-part medical before flying back to Ireland for their friendly with Oman tonight.

A deal worth £10m-plus tops the £7.4m paid to Anderlecht for Steven Defour two weeks ago and tops the £7m Leeds United paid Derby for Seth Johnson.

Hendrick becomes the fifth most expensive Irishman in history.
