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.”
