Report: Celtic 25-year-old could be farmed out ahead of next season

Belgian club KV Oostende are keen on making a move for Celtic defender Jack Hendry in the summer transfer window, as per the Daily Record.

De Kustboys had a difficult last season on the domestic front where they narrowly escaped relegation from the Belgium’s top-tier after finishing on the 15th position with 22 points, just two clear of relegated Waasl.-Beveren, largely because of the coronavirus outbreak which ended the league prematurely.

During their difficult campaign, Oostende clearly had a hard time defensively where they ended up conceding the second-most number of goals in the competition.

Therefore, as per the Daily Record, Oostende are now looking to make a loan move for Celtic’s Hendry in the upcoming transfer window in order to bolster their defensive unit for the next campaign.

The 25-year-old returned to Celtic after spending a season-long loan with Australian club Melbourne City, where his participation was limited, largely due to a serious knee injury that required a surgery as well.

Hoops defender Hendry is currently taking part in training with the Glasgow giants as he continues his road to recovery after a lengthy spell out of action.

The Scotland international has been a Celtic player since January 2018 when he moved from Dundee.

When given the chance to feature in the Bhoys first team, Hendry has put in inconsistent displays and as such does not appear to be in Neil Lennon’s immediate plans.
