Celtic star Moussa Dembele appears to be on the move as the striker has missed training, with two Ligue 1 sides reportedly interested.

The 22-year-old French striker, who joined the Parkhead club from Fulham two seasons ago, has been linked with a move to Ligue 1 sides Lyon and Marseille.

Dembele was at Celtic Park with his representatives to discuss his future while his team-mates trained at Lennoxtown in preparation for the second leg of the tie which stands at 1-1 from the first game in Lithuania last week.

Rodgers would not confirm whether Lyon were the club he was referring to but confirmed his other French striker Odsonne Edouard was back in training after recovering from a knock.

He said: “There’s a lot going on with Moussa at the moment. Moussa and his representatives were at the club today speaking with the club.

“There is speculation around him. Moussa is not a player we want to lose. It is on-going discussions. There hasn’t been an official bid as far as I am aware but interest.

“He is available for the game but I will speak to him later on.”
