According to the Daily Mail, the Hoops have submitted a £500,000 bid for Dundee defender Jack Hendry, with Brendan Rodgers desperate to bolster his centre-back options.

The 22-year-old has really impressed this season, with his calm and composed displays.

Hendry is more than capable with the ball at his feet - something that makes him ideally suited to Celtic's playing style.

The Scot has been ever present for his Dundee side in the Scottish Premiership this season, appearing in all of their 22 games.

Hendry is strong in the air, quick along the ground, and plays with a certain kind of maturity that defies his tender years.

For the price of just £500,000, Celtic might just be making one of the signings of the season, if Dundee actually accept their offer of course.
