Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele has been out of action since picking up an ankle injury against Wolves in November.
Mauricio Pochettino confirmed earlier that the Belgian is now back in training but not yet quite match fit yet.
The 31-year-old’s contract with Spurs finishes at the end of the current season and by the looks of it, the club doesn’t appear too keen on giving him an extension. Dembele is one of a whole host of players linked with a move away in the January transfer window, with rumours doing the rounds that the midfielder could make a move to the Chinese Super League (The Sun).
Tottenham have been linked with quite a few midfielders over recently days including the likes of Sander Berge, Amadou Diawara, Franck Kessie and Tanguy Ndombele.
It has been well publicised that Tottenham need to sell before they buy players due to their squad size and it seems as if Dembele could be one of the players leaving the club, along with the likes of Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen.
When asked about the 31-year-old’s contract situation, Pochettino told talkSPORT: “No. There is still no news. No news, again like Christian Eriksen – a different situation – it is not only in our hands.”
“In that business, there are different parties that are involved, then it is about to negotiate, to talk, and see what the different parties want.”
Dembele who is now into his seventh season at Spurs has been a loyal servant for the club.
Even if Dembele leaves this month, fans will be hoping they get to witness the midfielder in action one last time so that they can say their goodbyes.
