Dundee reportedly tried to sign Conor Hazard on loan, but were prevented from doing so because the goalkeeper had a contract issue with Celtic (the Courier).

The Northern Ireland international has signed twice for the Dens Park side on loan, and they were keen to have him return to the side once more.

Reportedly refused to sign new deal

However, the report states that Celtic pulled the plug on any deal after Hazard refused to sign an extension to his contract with the Glasgow side, which expires at the end of the season.

Dundee eventually managed to sign a goalkeeper a few weeks ago when Adam Legzdins joined the club. As for Hazard’s chanced of returning to Dundee, you have to imagine that they are over for the time being.

That will depend on his contract situation with Celtic. Should he sign a new deal with Celtic, then another loan deal to a Championship side could be in the offing.

 

Spent time on loan at other clubs

After all, as well as Dundee, Hazard has spent time on loan at Falkirk and Partick Thistle.

However, maybe the player could earn a permanent deal with  a Championship side should he decide to leave Celtic in the summer or in January.

There could be more than a few clubs interested in the player. It should not be forgotten that he has played in the past for Northern Ireland’s senior team, and is currently their third-choice goalkeeper.

For the moment though, Hazard is still at Celtic, and it seems that he will be there until the end of the season.
