Moussa Dembele responds to Chelsea transfer rumours

Celtic striker Moussa Dembele has his say on his future after the speculation linking him with Chelsea in January

Moussa Dembele has insisted that he has not been paying any attention to the speculation linking him with a transfer to Chelsea in recent weeks.

The Celtic striker was touted as a possible target for the Blues during the January transfer window as Antonio Conte pondered bolstering his attacking options at Stamford Bridge.

However, a winter move for the forward failed to materialise, with the forward now focused on Celtic until the end of the season at least.

Dembele was in prolific form this weekend as he scored a hat-trick to help Celtic seal a 5-2 win at St Johnstone.

And the striker was quizzed about his future after the game, but he gave little away.

Dembele is quoted as saying by Metro: “I don’t really listen to what is being said about me I just keep my head down and keep working.

“I was out with my knee and just tried to get back as we quickly as I can.

“Yeah, my future is here and I’m enjoying it.”
