The future of Celtic winger Karamoko Dembele has been a topic of discussion over the last six months.
There were reports earlier this year that he was set for a move abroad in the summer, with French duo Lille and Nantes just two clubs thought to be tracking the 18-year-old.
When Dembele signed professional terms with Celtic back in 2018, the club confirmed that his deal ran until at least 2021.
Mark Wilson was giving his views on the versatile teenager, with the Daily Record claiming in the introduction that the youngster has ‘just over a year remaining on his current deal’ – possibly nine vital words in regards to his future.
Do you think Karamoko Dembele has a future at Celtic?
Transfer Tavern take
It may only be another 12 months on his deal, but to us, this snippet of information could be crucial for the Hoops. Should any prospective suitors want to land Dembele this summer, they would now have to pay Celtic a fee for his services.
Dembele, who has made six senior appearances for Celtic, may now end up staying at the club beyond the summer. If he does, it gives the Hoops more time to potentially agree new terms with the in-demand teenager.
