Hearts are reportedly keen on taking Jack Hendry on loan from Celtic until the end of the season (Scottish Sun).

The defender has struggled for minutes under Neil Lennon at Parkhead and wants to kickstart his career. Daniel Stendel has been made aware of his services according to the report.

Hendry will be allowed to leave Parkhead as he’s way down the pecking order. Hearts could be one landing spot for him.

Wants to strengthen the backline

Stendel will be looking to improve upon his Hearts squad. They find themselves five points adrift at the Premiership’s basement and recruits are needed to steer them away from relegation.

Captain Christophe Berra isn’t in favour reportedly whilst John Souttar is also crocked. There appear to be vacancies in the Jambos backline and Hendry could plug a gap.

A Scotland international with three caps, there doesn’t appear to be a future for Hendry at Parkhead. Moving to Gorgie could potentially allow him to find some minutes out on the pitch again.

He’ll be in at the deep end though if he does move to Tynecastle as Hearts aim to stop dropping into the Championship.
