The Lowdown: Instant impact
The German arrived in Glasgow over the summer on a season-long loan from Lorient where he was announced in a double signing alongside Aaron Mooy, and there is an option to buy included.
The centre-back has made ten league starts out of a possible 15 so far this term which shows how much Ange Postecoglou values him at the heart of his backline, though where his future lies yet remains to be seen.
The Latest: Celtic to make Jenz decision
According to Football Scotland, Celtic are aware that there’s a ‘decision to be made’ on Jenz’ next steps which is likely to be taken ‘in the summer’.
The Hoops know that the 23-year-old has ‘done well’ since his arrival, so will no doubt carefully weigh up their options come the end of the current campaign.
The Verdict: Permanent contract deserved
The 6 foot 2 colossus is averaging 2.4 aerial duels, 2.3 clearances and even has two goals to his name, highlighting the impact he can have at both ends of the pitch (WhoScored).
Also recording a 90.7% pass success rate, Jenz has a real calming nature on the ball and so extending his stay north of the border isn’t something the club should even have to think twice about.
