According to The Dundee Evening Telegraph, Sunderland want to sign 23-year-old Scotland international defender Hendry from Celtic this month.
Celtic manager Rodgers has suggested that both the young players will leave on loan this month.
Rodgers told The Scottish Sun about Hendry and Morgan: “Jack and Lewis are out here with us, training, and then we’ll see when we get back. I spoke to both of them and they are great guys as well.
“So yeah, there is an interest in a number of our players. Some of these boys we will be looking to get them out on loan to get them games.”
Boost for Sunderland
Morgan is a very good winger who worked with Sunderland manager Ross at St. Mirren, and it will make sense for the Black Cats to sign the winger on loan in the January transfer window.
The 22-year-old will enhance Sunderland’s chances of finishing in the top two of the League One table at the moment.
As for Hendry, with the Black Cats having signed 21-year-old central defender Jimmy Dunne on loan from Burnley this month, they may not be going for Hendry.
