Dundee wants to sign Celtic midfielder Ewan Henderson on loan for the rest of the season, reports The Courier. Even though the transfer window has closed, teams in Scotland’s three division below the Premiership can sign players on loan until the end of February.

The report states that Celtic are keen to get the player some first-team football, but as yet have not decided if to go through with the loan move yet.

Keen to sign a midfielder

With Dundee’s Jordan McGhee out of action after surgery, the report goes on to reveals that Dundee is keen to sign a midfielder to replace him and Henderson fits the bill.

The 20-year-old Henderson spent the first-half of last season on loan at Ross County, and this season he has rarely featured for Celtic. He has made three appearances this season, two of those coming when a number of Celtic players were forced to self-isolate and some fringe players were involved.

Not been in first-team that often

However, since then he has not made a first-team appearance. He has not even featured on the bench for Celtic. Therefore, a move to Dundee might well appeal to the player. It would get him some first-team opportunities at a stage when a player really needs some.

It will be interesting to see if Celtic sanction the move. James McPake will presumably be hoping they do, as Dundee are in need of some midfield reinforcements. Henderson could well be the player to help Dundee seal a place in the Championship play-offs if he gets a run in the Dundee side.
