Midfielder Jon, 19, is discussing personal terms and the club hope to confirm his transfer shortly.
Director of football and acting boss David Pleat explained: "Although we had high hopes of Jonathan he's found it very difficult to settle and we all feel he will benefit from a move back home."
Jon joined us from Royal Excelsior Mouscron in the summer of 2002. His progress in pre-season was hampered when he suffered a broken finger in a friendly at Oxford that kept him out for six weeks.
The club can announce that we have reached agreement with Club Bruges for the permanent transfer of Jonathan Blondel.
