Celtic are prepared to listen to offers for central defender Jack Hendry before the Scottish transfer window shuts next month. The Daily Record is reporting that both Motherwell and Kilmarnock are keen on signing him while there could be interest from Germany.
But should Sunderland consider rekindling their own interest in the player?
As reported by the Dundee Evening Telegraph in January, Sunderland were keen on signing the Scotland international on loan during the winter transfer window.
Sunderland boss Jack Ross later confirmed to the Scottish Sun that there had been no contact between Celtic and the Black Cats for Hendry or winger Lewis Morgan.
However, the fact Morgan went on to join Sunderland on loan two weeks later gives that statement little credence.
Sunderland eventually signed Jimmy Dunne on loan from Burnley as their centre-back cover but it certainly appeared that Hendry was also on their shortlist.
Hendry could be a brilliant addition to the Sunderland team. With Jack Baldwin’s future uncertain he could act as a potential replacement for the experienced defender and provide good competition for Jacob Willis, Tom Flanagan and Alim Ozturk at the back.
Whilst Sunderland clearly have more pressing issues, such as bringing in a new left-back, if Hendry is an option on deadline day it will be no surprise if Sunderland do come forward with an offer.
