Hibernian are lining up a move for Celtic midfielder Ewan Henderson, according to Scott Burns of The Scottish Daily Express.
The Lowdown: Exits inevitable
The Hoops have already made their move in the January transfer window, bringing in Japanese trio Reo Hatate, Yosuke Ideguchi and Daizen Maeda. There could well be further signings, with a winger and a centre-back possibly on the club’s radar.
However, it appears that there could be some departures, with Albian Ajeti, Vasilis Barkas, Boli Bolingoli and Ismaila Soro four players who could move on. It seems as if Henderson may well be another man to leave Celtic Park, judging by a recent report.
The Latest: Maloney keen
Burns shared a story late on Friday evening, suggesting that new Hibs manager (and former Hoops player) Shaun Maloney is lining up a long-term permanent move for Henderson.
The 21-year-old is out of contract at Parkhead at the end of the season and is weighing up his options.
The Verdict: Not a surprise
Henderson, whose goal against Real Betis last month was described as ‘incredible’ by former Celtic goalkeeper Pat Bonner, has hardly featured under Ange Postecoglou.
In fact, his only appearance during the current campaign came against Betis at Parkhead. He will turn 22 in March, and it seems as if he isn’t fancied by Postecoglou at this moment in time.
On that basis, it wouldn’t exactly come as a shock if he moved to Easter Road on a permanent basis, so this could be one to keep a close eye upon over the coming weeks.
