Mousa Dembele casts serious doubts over Tottenham future

Mousa Demebele has revealed he will not think about his Tottenham future until after the World Cup.

The 30-year-old Belgium playmaker is hoping to feature at the World Cup and he says he will not waste any energy thinking about anything else until the tournament finishes in July.

He has though hinted that he will be open to offers with his Spurs deal set to expire in June 2019.

“We have not really talked about an extension of my contract,” Dembele told La Derniere Heure. “At the beginning of the season, I said I had physical problems, I want to see at the end of the season how I feel. That’s what the club and I decided by mutual agreement.

“If we talk about a new contract in the middle of the season, it will cost energy. Imagine how a player can feel unappreciated after a disappointing proposal. It can disrupt his game.”

Dembele has been hit with injuries this season, but he has still been integral for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, making 34 appearances.

“At this moment, I am very happy at Tottenham,” Dembele said. “I do not lie when I say that I do not think about a big transfer. I want to play a World Cup and afterwards we will see.

“Really, I’m not aware of the interest of other clubs. And, besides, I told my agent to wait for the summer to tell me about any offers. For now, I’m only focusing on Tottenham. Maybe this is my last season or maybe I’ll sign a new deal. We’ll see.”
