Wolves have emerged as one of the clubs chasing the signature of Celtic defender Jack Hendry, according to reports.
Hendry to Molineux?
The 25-year-old is currently out of on loan with Belgian club KV Oostende following on from a tricky period at Parkhead.
Hendry was heavily scrutinised by supporters of the Scottish Premiership giants, despite helping them win two domestic titles under the guidance of former boss Brendan Rodgers.
Despite this, his showings for the Jupiler Pro League side have attracted interest from the likes of Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo, who 90MIN report is one of the managers of the nine clubs interested in the player.
The report added that Aston Villa and Brighton are the other Premier League side keeping an eye on Hendry, who was previously described as a “very cool and calm” by former Scotland head coach Alex McLeish.
Championship side Bournemouth are another English team who are interested in the 6 foot 2 centre-back, along with foreign sides like Werder Bremen, Freiburg, Brondby, AZ Alkmaar and Belgian rivals Genk.
Transfer Tavern Verdict
With Hendry’s future looking uncertain in Scotland, it could be a good time for Nuno to grab an international defender on the cheap.
Hendry is only valued at £900,000 by TransferMarkt, but it is expected that Oostende will want at last a seven-figure sum from any club who wish to acquire his services.
With next summer’s delayed European Championships on the horizon, it will be a surprise if Hendry leaves Oostende due to the club’s interest in keeping him in Belgium for the time being and because he’ll want to continue to impress and hopefully earn a place in Steve Clarke’s squad. However, stranger things have happened in football.
