Celtic are reportedly preparing a bid for Dundee centre-back Jack Hendry sometime in the January transfer window.

The Daily Record has claimed that the Hoops are ready to test the Scottish Premiership club’s resolve with a bid worth around half of their valuation of £1.5million.

Whilst the 22-year-old may be a good prospect for the future, he isn’t the type of signings that supporters were hoping the Bhoys would make in January.

If you look at Celtic’s performances in the Champions League group stages this season, it’s clear that the Hoops have a long way to go to do anything apart from making up the numbers in the tournament.

To really make an impact takes spending big money – and much to the chagrin of fans it doesn’t look like that is going to happen anytime soon.

The two signings the Bhoys have made so far in January have been interesting as one in particular strays from the policy of the stated aim of buying players for a low fee and selling them on at a profit – 32-year-old Marvin Compper.

Compper was obviously signed to offer experience to a defence which has looked shay at times this season. The other signing, Lewis Morgan from St Mirren, looks to be a project for the future.

Hendry seems like another player who could be a project, but he isn’t the type of player liable to make an instant impact in Europe.
