Celtic defender, Jack Hendry, is poised for a summer move as his loan club, Oostende, have revealed they are keen to make his loan move permanent in the summer. The big six foot defender has been on loan at the club since the start of the season and by all accounts has enjoyed some great form so far.

Hendry had found himself out of favour at Celtic Park and secured a temporary move to the Belgian A side in a bid to get playing more regular football but has found his form again as Oostende now have one of the best defensive records in their league with Hendry at the heart of their backline.

As the Hoops found themselves in a defensive crisis this January due to the COVID fiasco, Celtic couldn’t recall Hendry from his loan as there wasn’t a recall clause entered into his deal when he signed for the Belgian A side.

Hendry was recently on loan with Australian A League outfit Melbourne City but only made two appearances before moving onto the Belgian A League.

Celtic signed the big defender for over £1 million pounds from Dundee back in 2018 and Hendry made 28 appearances that season under the then boss, Brendan Rodgers but has so far failed to impress current manager, Neil Lennon.

With just over a year left on his contract, Celtic will be looking to recoup most of the transfer fee that was shelled out for the Scottish international and will be confident IF the defender keeps up his current form.
