Mousa Dembele has spoken about his Tottenham Hotspur future whilst on World Cup duty with Belgium.

The 30-year-old midfielder has been heavily linked with a summer move away from the club but insists that he would never join another Premier League side because Tottenham Hotspur are his team.

A number of clubs are said to be interested in the services of the powerful midfielder including Napoli, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus along with clubs in big-spending China.

Whilst Dembele did stop short of confirming whether he will be staying at Spurs, it’s refreshing to hear that he has no desire to strengthen a Premier League rival and compete against his current team-mates.

With just twelve months to run on his existing contract, Tottenham may be forced to sell Dembele this summer or risk losing him for free.

He told the Belgian media: “I won’t say that I’m leaving Spurs right now. Or that I’m staying.

“If I leave, I won’t join another English club. Tottenham is my team.”

What do you make of Dembele’s comments? Have your say below

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. A true gentleman. definitely earned his Spurs. Always considered him an asset to the team. Has my respect and probably increased that by another 100% . Wish him all the best with whatever decision he makes.

  2. The hypocrisy of the modern footballer is sickening – badge kissing, sucking up to the fans with cheap talk about ‘loving’ the club, and all the time planning a big money move away, or pressuring the club to improve his contract, despite being clearly past his best. Dembele may not be another Adebayor or Kanoute in terms of sheer naked greed, but he’s no Mabbutt or Dawson either, and to call someone a legend when their contribution to Spurs in six years on £80k per week was no trophies, and hardly a goal or assist, is an insult to the real club legends, the Perrymans and Roberts, who sweated blood for Spurs, unlike the half-paced, half-arsed Dembele. Good riddance!

  3. My nickname for him is Rolls Royce because of the silky arrogant way he goes past defenders. Be really sorry to see him go. How about launching a bid for Isco as a replacement.

  4. i hope that we can find a way to extend his contract by a couple of years as he has been a team player and his comments show where his heart is
