The agent of Celtic striker Moussa Dembele says the Frenchman is happy to see out the remainder of his current contract at Parkhead.

Talking to the Daily Record, Mamadi Fofana said that Dembele is very relaxed about his future and wants to keep doing well for the Scottish Champions for the rest of the season:

“Moussa doesn’t stress. He signed a four-year deal at Celtic and, in his head, he’ll be at Celtic for those four years. If he has to leave, that will happen at the right time, but it’s not in Moussa’s head or my head.”

Dembele has been linked with a number of clubs including Arsenal, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in the January transfer window, but he was most closely associated with a £30m switch to Chelsea, but Fofana dismissed such talk as speculation:

“In January, there was speculation, but there will always be speculation if he does well. It’s good. It means we are all doing well. The boy is doing well, Celtic is doing well and we as agents are doing the right things for everyone.”

Dembele has had an excellent first season for Celtic after moving from Fulham on a free transfer in the summer. The 20 year old has scored 27 times in 41 appearances so far this campaign, including two hat-tricks in his last three games against St Johnstone in the league, and Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Scottish Cup.
