Report: Wolves enquire about Celtic defender Jack Hendry

Wolves have reportedly made enquiries about Celtic’s central defender Jack Hendry.

The 25-year-old is currently on loan at Belgian side KV Oostende, and has made 13 appearances for them so far in the Jupiler Pro League in 2020/21.

It’s been a pretty productive campaign for Hendry, who has been a key cog for Oostende, who have been one of the best defensive outfits in the division up to now.


90min have claimed that Hendry’s form over in Belgium has led to interest from England, with Aston Villa, Brighton, Bournemouth and Wolves all keen.

But the interest doesn’t stop there. 90min add that there is also some clamour from a few foreign teams including AZ Alkmaar, Genk, Brondby, Werder Bremen and Freiburg.

Hendry is due to spend the rest of the season at Oostende, and Celtic will then take a decision on him in the summer.

Celtic’s defence has left a lot to be desired this season, and it could be that he gets a reprieve at Parkhead if he continues his good form through to the end of 2020/21.

He’s certainly made an impact so far, with Oostende manager Alexander Blessen saying in November: “You can see them listening to him. He’s been a tower of experience for us. Jack’s the most important member of the team this season and he’s one of the best defenders in the league.”

Wolves defence not an area of concern

Nuno Espirito Santo has some really good options including Conor Coady, Willy Boly, Romain Saiss and Max Kilman, and Leander Dendoncker and Fernando Marcal can also fill in.

Saiss is out of contract at the end of the season but the club supposedly have the option of a further year if they wish to trigger it.

One would imagine they will take up that option.
