By Wayne Veysey
Celtic have agreed for defenders Jack Hendry and Calvin Miller to join Kilmarnock in a double deal with Greg Taylor heading the other way, Football Insider understands.
Scotland international centre-back Hendry, 24, and left-back Miller, 21, are set to simultaneously move to Rugby Park following extensive negotiations between the clubs over the structure of the Taylor deal.
A Celtic source has told Football Insider that paperwork on the transfers of the Hoops defensive pair is set to be finalised today, ahead of the Scottish window cut-off tomorrow night.
Hendry is set to join Kilmarnock on a season-long loan, while Miller is expected to move permanently to the Ayrshire club.
Football Insider reported earlier today that Taylor, 21, has agreed a long-term contract with Celtic and the paperwork on the deal is being finalised today after a breakthrough last night.

Neil Lennon has given the green light for Hendry to go out loan after he failed to make a matchday squad in the first months of this new season.
The centre-back, who has three more years remaining on his Celtic contract after signing from Dundee in January of last year for a fee of around £1.2million, has failed to add to his 26 Hoops appearances since Lennon took over as manager in February.
Celtic academy product Miller has a year remaining on his contract and is surplus to requirements after failing to make an impression under Lennon.
Capped by Scotland at Under-21 level, he is set to leave Parkhead after making five first-team appearances.
