There has been talk in Belgium about Oostende making the deal for Jack Hendry permanent after this season.
The defender has made a big impression at the club and regularly features in the Belgian League TOTW.
Surplus to requirements at Celtic, the defender took a chance heading out to play with his current loan side but it has proven to be the right call.
His career has been rejuvenated and he can be delighted with himself for showing the application needed to be a success.
There are still big question marks over the player’s immediate future and if Oostende were looking for a definitive statement if he would be staying beyond the summer, they didn’t get it in Jack’s BBC interview.
Asked about what the future holds for himself, Jack did not rule out a permanent Parkhead return in the summer.
“I’m open to anything that comes my way. It’s vital that wherever I choose next season, I need to play every week to continue my development. If Celtic want to keep me, that’s something they would need to make a decision on.
“It’s frustrating that I was never given the opportunity to show what I could do [under Lennon]. The way I’m performing, I could have a real good impact and it’s not been nice seeing the way the season has panned out for them.
“I needed to hit the reset button. Oostende really wanted me. They finished low down the league last season but I felt I could have a good impact. Thankfully it is paying off.”
It would be quite the turnaround if Jack was to make it at Celtic. However, there is a scenario where he might be needed for Euro qualifiers. Celtic are due to play in July and will be short of centre-backs when the time comes unless they start making serious moves.
