Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Celtic trio Lewis Morgan, Jack Hendry and Youssouf Mulumbu are set to leave the club on loan this month.

As reported by the Scotsman, Rodgers revealed his plans for the rest of the month, with the three players looking to depart in search of regular first-team football.

Neither of the aforementioned players have found game time easy to come by this season.

Mulumbu only joined the Hoops in the summer but has been used sparingly by Rodgers, despite impressing during his time at Kilmarnock.

Speaking about the midfielder, Rodgers explained:

Youssouf is at the age where he needs to play really. He came in as a support player to the team but he’s at the age really where he needs to play in the next part of the season so he’ll probably go out on loan.

Morgan has failed to break into the side and is expected to suffer even more following the signings of Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah this month.

Sunderland and Hibernian have expressed an interest in the former St Mirren man.

Central defender Hendry has shown flashes of promise but has fallen out of favour and needs regular game time to get his development back on track.

Rodgers explained why game time is important for the defender.

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.

Should Celtic let all three players leave on loan?
