Burnley: Insider now claims Jack Hendry could be set for Turf Moor transfer

Burnley now have another centre-back on their agenda this summer with Scotsman Jack Hendry believed to be a serious target. 

This has been suggested by insider Ryan Taylor, who has been discussing the expectations for the final weeks of the window at Turf Moor on his latest YouTube video.

Reports have suggested the 27-year-old has now been told he has no future with Club Brugge and was exempt from the squad in their last league outing.

Hendry has been playing his football out in Belgium for a couple of years and signed for Club Brugge last summer in a deal believed to be worth £4m.

With his future now in doubt, Taylor believes Vincent Kompany could be set to recruit the centre-back he will know from his time managing Anderlecht, with a bid already lodged by the Championship side.

He said: “I do think there are still a few more signings to be done, particularly in attack, and a centre-back is also on the agenda. A bid went in for Jack Hendry, who’s at Club Brugge.

“And I believe he’s been told he’s free to move on this summer. So a deal could potentially be in the works there, but no deal agreed so far. He’s a Scotland international and there has also been interest from Wolfsburg in Germany.”

TIF Thoughts on Taylor’s comments…

Burnley have made some big changes over the summer and it seems there has been an awful lot of trust put in their new manager’s judgement.

Are you pleased with Burnley's summer business?





Three centre-backs have been brought through the doors at Turf Moor already this summer, however, none of the three recruits are older than 22 years old.

Having lost Ben Mee, James Tarkowski and Nathan Collins, we think it would be a great move if Burnley can add some experience to guide those young defenders.

And Hendry certainly has experience to his name, with the 27-year-old having played across a number of leagues in a variety of different countries.
