Report: Celtic’s Jack Hendry wanted by Burnley, Brighton and Sheffield United

Celtic defender Jack Hendry is on the radar of a number of Premier League sides, with the Daily Mail reporting that Burnley, Brighton and Sheffield United are all monitoring the 25-year-old.

Hendry appears to be getting his career back on track after a difficult time at Parkhead. The centre-back has spent the season on loan at Oostende, making 22 appearances in the Belgian top flight.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Daily Mail notes that they would like to sign Hendry permanently. However, there are also a host of English sides keeping an eye on his situation.

The Mail claims that the Clarets are interested amid doubts over James Tarkowski’s Turf Moor future. The Sun reported last month that Burnley were braced for bids of around £30 million in January.

Meanwhile, Brighton find themselves in a similar boat as Ben White continues to attract attention.


The Mail adds that Celtic will make a decision on his future in the summer. Of course, the Hoops are on the lookout for a new manager following Neil Lennon’s departure.

So, much may depend on whether the new man coming in wants to keep Hendry. His form in Belgium has provided a reminder of why the Bhoys signed him in the first place.

Having said that, given that he struggled during his previous run in the side, perhaps Celtic may ultimately decide that cashing in may be best for all concerned if a significant bid does come in.
