Manager delivers update on Celtic hunt for 22-year-old
Dundee manager Neil McCann has confirmed that Celtic have not made any other bids for centre-back Jack Hendry, and that the player is not for sale.
The Bhoys have previously had a bid for the player for the player turned down, a bid that McCann described to BBC Sport as “very low“.
As the transfer window reaches its climax, the Dundee boss is adamant that the 22-year-old won’t be sold.
“There has been absolutely nothing,” McCann said, as quoted by the Courier.
“I have no problems with Jack in terms of all this speculation doesn’t seem to have affected him.
“As I have said before, I am trying to do something here and Jack is a big part of it.”
The Hoops have recently signed Chelsea’s Charly Musonda on an 18 month loan-deal as they look to add to their squad before the deadline passes.
Football Insider verdict
Neil McCann may want to keep Hendry at all costs, but it wouldn’t be at all surprising if the Hoops make another bid for the player in the next 24 hours. Brendan Rodgers obviously rates the player and seems very eager to bring him to Glasgow. The sticking point though may be the difference in valuation between the clubs in what they think Hendry is worth, and of course Dundee are well within their rights to try and get as much money as they possibly can for a player who is a key figure in their battle to avoid relegation. All will be revealed soon but it wouldn’t be considered that much of a shock if Hendry is playing in the Hoops come the 1st of February.
