Premier League sides West Ham United, AFC Bournemouth and Crystal Palace along with Newcastle United are all ready to send scouts to watch Dundee United centre-back Jack Hendry against Hibernian.
The report is according to a report in The Daily Mail which also claimed the four EPL clubs will be joined by representatives from Celtic and Rangers, who have already been reported to be interested in the youngster.
After series of impressive performances since joining Dundee from Wigan Atletic in the summer, Hendry has attracted attention from a wide range of top sides – but the report claims the 22-year-old could be available for an affordable £1.5m.
Dundee currently sit 10th in the Scottish Premiership table, just five points above relegation zone, losing one of their star might affect their bid to stay in the top flight.
Jack Hendry is potentially the best defender to leave Scotland since £75 million Virgil. So why should @dundeefconline sell him for less than £10 million? Viewed from here, it'd be robbery. Personally, I'd be looking for a lot more than £10m in current state of English market.

Celtic, who had earlier been reported to be interested in his services, have already seen a reported bid of £500,000 rejected for Hendry, and with six clubs vying for his signature, a bid from elsewhere is on cards. Keeping Hendry at the Tannadice Park won’t come easy for the club with host of Premier League clubs interested in him and are well-known for their mouth-watering offers.
BBC Sport confirmed the former Wigan defender is line to make Dundee selection in tonight’s meeting with fourth placed Hibernian, and the Dee will hope the young centre-back can remain focused in a game that Dundee need something from to boost their survival hopes.
