The Scottish defender has spent time away from Parkhead this season for Belgium’s KV Oostende side and it seems to have done him some good.
Hendry only made 27 appearances for the Hoops following his Â£ 1.5million transfer from Dundee in January 2018.
The 25-year-old’s time with Australia’s Melbourne City squad last January was cut short due to a knee ligament injury, but the Scotland international bounced back with a series of man-of-the-match performances in Belgium.
A major pitfall is that Ostend has the option of turning their loan into a permanent deal – as sporting director Gauthier Ganaye has confirmed.
Ganaye told GlasgowLive: âWe have a loan with an option to buy.
âIf we take that option and we can convince him, he will stay with us longer. Then we have to see what we can do for each other.
“Anyway, Jack feels good about himself here.
“Given his excellent performance, I hope we can convince him that KVO is the step for him towards the national team and another bright future in football.”
The Celtic hierarchy must make a decision on Hendry’s future this summer. Indeed, it all could depend on the club’s new manager, who has yet to be named, and his plans for the 6-foot-4 Scotsman.
Burnley weighs their options with James Tarkowski considering his future at the end of the season.
