Moussa Dembele has revealed that he will remain at Lyon until the end of the current season.
The former Celtic striker had been linked with a possible move to Tottenham Hotspur during the current transfer window (Football.London).
Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho has been left short of attacking options following Harry Kane’s hamstring injury which will see the England international not return to training until at least April.
Dembele has scored 15 goals in 29 appearances for the French outfit in all competitions this season (transfermarkt).
The 23-year-old revealed his intention to remain at his current club after helping Lyon to reach the final of the French League Cup following a penalty shoot out win against Lille.
Manchester United and Chelsea had also both been credited with an interest in the French Under-21 international who is said to be valued at around £40million (Daily Mail).
Mourinho admitted that he is in the market for a striker but is looking for more of a target man to help add another layer style to his attack in the absence of Kane (Football.London).
Dembele told reporters after the game, as quoted by Yahoo Sports: “I am a Lyon player and I will remain so until the end of the season.
“I do not think that there will be a departure this winter. Lots of things are being said but it’s up to me to ignore that and remain concentrated on the pitch.”
