Celtic: Jack Hendry attracting Premier League interest

Celtic defender Jack Hendry is attracting interest from plenty of Premier League sides ahead of the summer window.

The 25-year-old was sent out on loan to Belgian side KV Oostende back in July and has impressed in the Jupiler Pro League this season.

An exclusive report from 90min has now claimed that Oostende intend to take up their option to buy Hendry permanently at the end of the season for less than £2m.

Villa, Newcastle and West Ham just a few keen

The report goes onto add that Oostende are well aware of the interest in Hendry and they feel they could be able to then sell the defender to a top-flight side for around £10m.

Aston Villa, Brighton, Burnley and Wolves were all keen in January, with Crystal Palace Leicester City, Newcastle United and West Ham now keeping an eye on the Hoops man.

Transfer Tavern take

Celtic may have made a huge transfer blunder by allowing Oostende to have an option to make Hendry’s loan permanent in the summer, as he’s proven his quality in Belgium this season.

He has only made 27 appearances for the Hoops since his £1.44m move three years ago, spending time out on loan with Melbourne City prior to his Oostende switch.

Should Oostende cash in for under £2m, the Hoops would make a small profit, however, they may then have to watch on and miss out on a possible £8.56m profit, should the Belgian side sell to a Premier League outfit for the reported £10m.
