Celtic signing Jack Hendry hints at Bournemouth, West Ham offers

Celtic signing Jack Hendry admits he had offers to return to the Premier League last month.

The Scot joined the Hoops from Dundee, despite interest from Bournemouth, West Ham and Newcastle United.

The former Swansea City defender said: "There was a lot of interest from down south, but there was only one place I wanted to come and that was Celtic."

And it was because the Scottish giants could offer Champions League football that the young defender shunned a move to the Premier League.

He added: "That's where you want to play, and why I came here to play on those stages.

"If I fulfil my ability that's certainly somewhere that I will look to play, and that's one of the reasons I came to play here."
