French striker Moussa Dembele finally left Celtic this week, after a lengthy period of transfer rumours out of the club.
The forward transferred back to his home country, with Lyon paying around £19.7m for his services.
Considering that Celtic signed the player for nothing when his contract ran out at Fulham, Celtic will see this a huge success…but Tottenham, not so much.
Spurs had held talks with Fulham 6 months prior to Dembele’s contract ending, but refused to fulfil Fulham’s wishes of sending the player back out on loan to Craven Cottage for the remainder of the season.
Subsequently, the £6m deal broke down, and Dembele eventually moved to Celtic.
Tottenham will have to make do with the Mousa Dembele already within their ranks.
Did Spurs miss out on a star player here?
