Celtic round-up: Burke loan bid, possible Hendry exit, Bayo valued

Burke loan bid

Celtic are ready to make an offer for West Bromwich Albion winger Oliver Burke (The Sun).

Brendan Rodgers apparently wants him to come in on loan for the rest of the 2018/19 season.

Burke has struggled to nail down a regular starting place for the Baggies this term, but is still seemingly hot property with Milwall and Wigan Athletic also interested.

The former RB Leipzig player is a full Scotland international and has five caps.

Possible duo exit

Jack Hendry is to be sent out on loan by Celtic according to The Daily Mail.

 

The defender hasn’t started a game for the Bhoys since October, and is behind Dedryck Boyata, Filip Benkovic, Kristoffer Ajer, and Jozo Simunovic in the pecking order.

Hendry joined Celtic in January 2018, but has failed to convince at Parkhead in his first full year at the club.

Portsmouth and Sunderland have also been credited with an interest in him.

The Scottish Sun claim flop Marvin Compper will also be allowed to leave.

Bayo valued

Celtic must pay £3 million to sign Vakoun Issouf Bayo this month (The Scotsman).

The striker, who plays his football for Slovakian side Dunajska Streda, has been the subject of interest for the Scottish giants in the lead up to the January transfer window.

The Parkhead outfit have reportedly offered £1.75 million for the Ivorian, but it’ll take almost double that to prise him away from his current club.

Bayo has scored 18 goals in 23 appearances so far this season, and is being eyed as cover/competition for Odsonne Edouard, with Leigh Griffiths still on an indefinite break from football.
