Dembele’s statement on Tottenham transfer move this summer

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele has refused to reveal whether he will be at the club ahead of the new season.

The Belgian international, an earner of £80,000-a-week wages, has been linked with a move away from North London, with Inter Milan reportedly interested in his services.

Speaking to news outlet Het Laatste Niews, the 30-year-old said that he will look abroad should his exit from the club be confirmed.

“I won’t say that I’m leaving Spurs right now. Or that I’m staying,” Dembele said.

“If I leave, I won’t join another English club. Tottenham is my team.”

Dembele, who has made 171 appearances for Spurs since joining in 2012, is currently competing at the World Cup in Russia.
