Celtic have made a second approach to sign Dundee defender Jack Hendry increasing their offer to £1 million to secure his services before tonight’s transfer deadline.

The defender has been on Celtic’s radar for some time and had failed in an earlier bid this month when they offered £500,000 for the 22-year-old.

The improved offer could now tempt the Dundee hierarchy into accepting the deal despite Dens Park boss Neil McCann slapping a £1.5m price tag on the player, who described the first offer as ‘very, very low’.

The former Partick Thistle and Wigan youth player has played 30 times for the Dens Park side scoring twice this season and has 18-months left on his contract at the club.

Dundee will be hoping to secure the right price for a player they won’t want to lose as they battle against relegation, with a number of Premier League clubs circling around Hendry also.
