Dembele to stay at Celtic

Celtic do not need to sell Moussa Dembele, according to major shareholder Dermot Desmond.

Moussa Dembele has played down speculation that he could leave Celtic.

The 20-year-old, who signed a four-year deal when he joined in the summer, has been linked with several clubs after a strong start to the season.

But he is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: “That is what everyone is saying but I haven’t said that. For me, I am here until the end of my contract and for many years.

“It is not something I think about. I don’t listen to those stories.

“I want to keep playing in the Champions League and keep playing in the Champions League for Celtic first. Because I think I will stay here 100 per cent. I want to keep improving and keep developing as a player.”
