St Johnstone star Callum Hendry is a target for Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink at Burton Albion


CALLUM HENDRY is the target of Burton Albion manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

The former Dutch striker was impressed with hitman Hendry’s form at St Johnstone.

And he is keen to lure the 24-year-old south to the League One club this summer.

Hendry is also wanted by new Fleetwood Town gaffer Scott Brown, who raided McDiarmid Park to sign full-back Shaun Rooney this week.

The wanted striker is out of contract and heading for a return to England. Hendry was with his father Colin’s club, Blackburn Rovers, but struggled with injuries before relaunching his career in Scotland.

The striker has scored 14 goals this season between loan club Kilmarnock and Saints.

He scored a crucial goal in the play-off win over Inverness helping provide top-flight safety for the Perth side.

Perth boss Callum Davidson is resigned to losing Hendry as interest mounts.

The Saints have offered the striker a new deal but he is set to reject it and move elsewhere.

It’s a massive turnaround for Hendry, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Killie.

Meanwhile, Rangers are keeping an eye on former England goalkeeper Jack Butland.

Ibrox manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst has the nine-capped Crystal Palace goalkeeper on a shortlist to be his new No.1, with 40-year-old Allan McGregor set to retire.

The 29-year-old Eagles’ future is in doubt after two seasons as a substitute for Spaniard Vincente Guaita.

Butland, who has a year left on his contract, has made just 17 appearances since his £1million move from Stoke City in 2020.

Promoted Bournemouth are also interested but it is believed a move north could hinge on Rangers’ success in the Champions League qualifiers.
