The Daily Mail announced that Celtic have placed a £500,000 offer to Dundee for young defender Jack Hendry.

The 22-year-old was previously monitored by some Premier League teams, such as Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and Southampton.

The former Wigan Athletic player has had a fairly successful season so far, making 22 league appearances and he is one of the top defenders in Scottish Premiership.

As a result, his great performances are being noticed by the league’s best clubs and he could now improve Celtic’s unstable defense that was humiliated in the Champions League group stage.

Since Celtic conceded a whopping 18 times in the group phase of the Champions League, it is evident that the Hoops need fresh blood in defense.

Despite his young age, Hendry is highly rated by the Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers, who would certainly like to bring the player to his roster.

Dundee denied the possibility of the sale of the prospective centre-back; however, if Rodgers was to decide to go after Hendry, this transfer could easily be completed in January.
