The agent of Mousa Dembele has revealed that the Belgian won’t be signing a new contract with the club before the World Cup.
Tom De Mul was quoted by the Evening Standard as saying the 30-year-old has a number of interested clubs who would be keen to sign him this summer:
“Mousa has another one year contract with Tottenham. He has played a fantastic season and there is a lot going on around him – there is a lot of interest inside and outside of Europe, we are waiting for the World Cup and I hope he plays in Russia, because he deserves that after such a good season.”
“Avoid a difficult last year like [Toby] Alderweireld? For the time being, Mousa does not sign.”
Fans on Twitter were disappointed but not surprised by the agent’s comments:
He’s been a great servant whatever happens.

can’t be too mad at Mousa if he leaves, he’s been a good servant to the club and he may be in for his last contract.. deserves to get paid

Yeah 100% and particularly if he feels his body isn’t up to the PL anymore which was apparently one of the reasons why he wants to go

That’s fair , mousa has been a great servant never moaned , fantastic professional. Now is the time for both sides to part ways.
He gets one last big move , we get a decent transfer fee.
Thanks for the service @mousadembele #spursfamily

Love him to bits and I think he deserves a wee pay day in China.

Been a great player to watch over the years but not quite what we need starting to reach that next level

Mousa has 12 months to run on his contract, and it seems by the looks of things he is keeping his options open about his future. De Mul certainly doesn’t rule out the player staying but things don’t look that promising.
All the rumours coming out of the club suggest we are preparing to sell the midfielder, and reports have linked us with numerous players who could replace our no.19 in the squad.
It looks as though the speculation won’t be dying down any time soon about Dembele’s future. We can probably expect some resolution in July.
