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:

Verdict:

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.

  • Yes, a great servant to the club. He’s taken his modest salary (barely three million a year) uncomplainingly, and sometimes played as much as half a season without being injured. Who’ll ever forget those fantastic goals, assists and match-winning performances – he’s been almost as indispensable as Jenas or Livermore, and richly deserves the chance to take his talents elsewhere. He’s only cost Spurs something approaching forty million in wages plus transfer fee, so if something can be recouped from selling him to China or Italy, his six-year sabbatical at Spurs won’t have been a complete waste of money (but nothing can compensate for Dembele’s waste of his own talent – he COULD have been a great player if he could have been bothered).

  • Uffff, Cheshuntboy. Does Dembele really deserve such a level of sarcasm? Dembele played his game, which is ball possession, and he has been superb at that. And, by all accounts, this has been the game that Poch has wanted him to play, so he’s done what was asked of him, and done it damned well. Clearly Dembele does not deserve thanks or praise if we are to evaluate him as a goal scorer. But at what he’s been called upon to do, he’s done it quite well, and it would be quite difficult to find someone to replace the set of skills that he has demonstrated in his time with us. All the best to the lad if and when he moves on, as it seems he is in the process of doing.
