Hendry, 25, has three caps for his country but had fallen down the pecking order under Neil Lennon’s management at Celtic. But with Lennon now gone completely, there are once again question marks over the future of Henry.

United, meanwhile, are looking for a new defender after being hit with a nightmare injury crisis this season. Phil Jagielka could also choose to retire in the summer, while the likes of John Egan and Jack O’Connell may be courted by Premier League clubs.

Hendry, then, could prove the ideal signing for the Blades.

Sheffield United want Jack Hendry but will Celtic sell?

That really is the all important question. Celtic have a huge summer coming with a new manager set to be appointed and a host of big players’ futures up for debate.

The likes of Odsonne Edouard and Kris Ajer will be priorities for the Bhoys, potentially leaving Hendry by the wayside and allowing someone like United to swoop.

In terms of the Blades, we do need a new central defender. Even if we did keep everyone, we are still going to lose Ethan Ampadu, meaning a slot in the squad is very much up for grabs.
