Celtic defender Hendry completes Melbourne City loan move

The 24-year-old Scotland international has signed an 'injury replacement contract'.

Celtic defender Jack Hendry has completed a loan move to Australian side Melbourne City.

The 24-year-old has signed an ‘injury replacement contract’ with the A-League outfit.

STV revealed last week that the move was imminent.

Hendry, capped three times for Scotland, signed for Celtic from Dundee in 2018 but has struggled to break into the team.

He said: “I’m looking forward to the challenge of coming to Australia and continuing my development at Melbourne City.

“It’s an exciting prospect to come to another league across the globe and play football and for the time I am at the club, I’m fully committed to achieving success at Melbourne City.”
