Brendan Rogers, Celtic manager has moved to explain why Dembele took a trip to London on deadline day. He’s been widely associated with a possible move to Chelsea.
The French Under-20 striker, was spotted on a flight to the capital just ahead of the deadline.
Roger said: “It was incredibly ironic that the story broke and our medical team had planned a trip for him actually in Chelsea.”
Dembele has scored nine goals for Celtic this season, putting him on the map and giving rise to questions over his future at the club.
Amid all the interest over Dembele’s future, a picture quickly circulated on social media of him on a place to London.
A tweet to calm everything down

“Listen, he (Dembele) loves being here. All the other players, they’re playing to a high level. If you’re working at that level, the beauty of it is teams and big teams are going to recognise you in these competitive leagues.”
It seems like Dembele is going to stay committed to Celtic, atleast for the time being.
