Celtic are set to make a swoop for Burnley duo Robbie Brady and Jeff Hendrick as Lennon looks to bolster his squad in the summer.
Celtic could land both players for nothing as the duo are out of contract in the summer, this would be a real bargain as both players have been on decent form with Hendricks having more of an impact for Burnley this season. (Stats)
Robbie Brady who cost the English club nearly £14 million back in 2016, might feel that Celtic is a massive career move that he can’t turn down.
This move might be a bad sign for Hayes as both players are very similar types, Brady has had around 46 caps at international level with Hayes only managing to gain 4.
Even though Hayes has had a few good performances with one being against Lazio, most Hoops fans still feel that a few good games doesn’t merit a contract extension.
Hayes A Good Servant To Celtic
There’s no doubt about it, Hayes has served Celtic well when the player has been called upon, but Lennon needs to enhance the quality of the squad and move forward.
There could be another outcome and Hayes could also stay at the club to fight for a place, with Bolingoli falling out of favour with Lennon, Hayes could be made Celtic’s permanent cover for Taylor and Brady could stick to the midfield.
