Newcastle United interested in signing Jack Hendry – Report
Tuesday has seen reports of Newcastle United interest in Jack Hendry.
Rafa Benitez is said to be keen on bringing in the centre-back in the upcoming transfer window.
Clubcall say that Newcastle are one of three Premier League clubs, along with Southampton and Crystal Palace, that have been watching the 22 year old.
Leaving Partick Thistle at the age of 20 he went to Wigan but only played a few games, as well as a handful on loan at Shrewsbury and MK Dons.
Moving back north to Dundee in the summer he has thrived, Hendry playing in all 16 of their league matches starting 15.
The suggestion is that if Rafa Benitez has only limited funds in January then the defender could be seen as a bargain signing to strengthen the squad.
In October, Celtic narrowly beat Dundee 1-0 at Celtic Park and manager Brendan Rodgers said:
“The boy Hendry at the back I thought was excellent.
“He is quick and strong and is a good size.
“Scotland need centre-halves and that looks like a good kid.
“He’s tall, he can run and he can pass – he looks a talent.”
