Dembele: 'I want to stay at Celtic'

Moussa Dembele says that he wants to stay with Celtic despite suggestions that the likes of Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid are interested in his services.

In-demand French forward Moussa Dembele has insisted that he wants to stay at Celtic.

Dembele, who joined on a free transfer from Fulham in the summer, has scored 16 goals in 25 appearances for his Scottish club this term, including four times in the Champions League.

Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have all been credited with an interest, but the former Fulham striker has said that he wants to continue his development in Scotland.

"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," the Daily Mail quotes Dembele as saying.

"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%. I want to keep improving and keep developing as a player."

Last month, it was claimed that Celtic had slapped a £40m asking price on the head of Dembele, who netted 15 times for Fulham in the second tier of English football last season.
