It comes as reports down south say League One outfit Peterborough United are also keen on the 23-year-old, also linked with Bradford and Sunderland this month.
Speaking after last night’s victory over St Johnstone, Celts boss Brendan Rodgers revealed defender Filip Benkovic was battling to save his season and that his injury could scupper Hendry’s loan.
Earlier this month, Rodgers told the Scotland international his Parkhead career wasn’t over.
He said: “It’s just about time.

“When you think of Jack coming in a year ago it was a steep learning curve for him, playing under big pressure and big games.
“What he has is potential because there are a lot of really good things to his game and of course when you make mistakes at the big clubs then of course it gets highlighted even more.

“But you saw it with Ryan Christie, a perfect example of if you’re not ready now you can go away on a good loan or a couple of loans and when you come back in and you get your opportunity you’ve got to take it.”
McManus, 37, also claims Ross County are interested in Celtic full-back Calvin Miller, who was on loan at Dundee earlier this season.
