Defender Jack Hendry has opened up about his future, after recently being linked with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 25-year-old is currently on loan with Belgian outfit Oostende, who reportedly have an option to buy him this summer from Celtic.

Hendry’s time with the club has been very successful.

He’s made 26 appearances so far, and scored a couple of goals along the way.

He’d faded into the background back at Parkhead, and so the move to Oostende has been brilliant for him.

There has now been some talk about where he’ll be playing his football next season.

90min claimed back in January that Wolves were keen on Hendry and had enquired about him.

 

Speaking about the near future, Hendry said (via the Daily Record): “I definitely feel I could have an impact at Celtic.

“Obviously it has been difficult to watch at times this season but football is football and it has worked out playing for Oostende against some really top teams and really top strikers.

“For me, I’ve told my representatives to get me playing at the highest level I possibly can get to. Whatever that club may be.

“I feel it’s really important that I’m playing each week and playing at the highest level possible because I can play at a very high level and hopefully I’ve demonstrated that this season.”

‘Highest level possible’

Clearly, Hendry would like a second bite of the cherry with Celtic.

But his comment about wanting to play at the highest level possible should give Wolves some encouragement if they wanted to do a deal.

The Premier League is obviously a step up from the Scottish Premiership and the Belgian First Division A, and surely constitutes the kind of standard Hendry hopes to play.
