Spurs target Dembele ‘happy at Fulham’

Moussa Dembele is adamant that he is fully committed to Fulham despite being linked with a move from Craven Cottage.

Dembele was quoted in the Belgian media suggesting a transfer to Tottenham, who are reportedly interested in signing him, would be a “step higher.”

But the forward, currently on international duty with Belgium, has subsequently moved to insist he is happy playing under Whites boss Martin Jol.

In a statement, Dembele said: “Yes, I was asked about the links with Spurs, and I did respond that I was flattered by interest in me, because it means I am playing well, nothing more.

“I am happy at Fulham and I am under contract here. I am making progress under Martin Jol and adding further dimensions to my game, so I’m happy playing here.

“I want to assure the manager, the fans and of course the chairman, I am fully committed to the club and that any links with other clubs are nothing but speculation, and something I am not even thinking about at this time.”

Dembele, 24, has scored four goals in 35 Premier League appearances since moving to west London from AZ Alkmaar in August 2010.

Spurs showed some interest in him earlier this year and have been tipped to table a bid when the transfer window re-opens in January.
