Celtic striker Moussa Dembele insists he wants to stay in Glasgow for the long-term.

Celtic striker Moussa Dembele has told the Scottish Sun that he has no interest in leaving Glasgow in the near future.

Dembele only joined Celtic last summer, but his form for Brendan Rodgers’ side has already seen him linked with a move away.

Manchester United are one of the clubs who are believed to be interested in signing the 20-year-old.

However, Dembele insists that his head has not been turned by rumours about his future, as he wants to remain with Celtic.

“For me, I am here until the end of my contract and for many years," Dembele said. 

“Leaving is not something I think about. I don’t listen to those stories.

“I want to keep playing in the Champions League and keep playing in the Champions League for Celtic first.

“I think I will stay here 100 per cent. I want to keep improving and keep developing as a player."

Dembele is currently on a long-term deal at Celtic, so the Bhoys are under no pressure to sell.

However, Rodgers has already admitted that it will be difficult to keep Dembele at Parkhead for the long-term.

Dembele has scored 16 goals already this season, and is considered one of the brightest talents in Britain.

Dembele’s next action for Celtic is likely to come at the weekend, when Rodgers’ side take on Aberdeen in the Scottish League Cup final.
