Celtic striker Moussa Dembele has no plans to leave the club, according to his agent Mamadi Fofana.

The 20-year-old is settled in Glasgow following his summer switch from Fulham, and is thriving under Hoops manager Brendan Rodgers.

Celtic paid Fulham a development fee of £500,000 in June and Dembele has repaid the club with 27 goals in all competitions, with five coming in the Champions League.

Dembele has since been included in the France squad, and he is poised for his first full international cap having already represented his country at every level from U16 upwards.

"Moussa doesn't stress," Fofana said. "He signed a four-year deal at Celtic and in his head he'll be at the club for those four years.

"If he has to leave that will happen at the right time, but it's not in Moussa's head or mine. In January there was speculation, but there will always be speculation if he does well.

"But Moussa's not affected. I am not even thinking of the future. I don't wake up in the morning thinking, where will Moussa go in the summer.

"The future does not exist. The past has gone. It's about being a better player right now. The plan with Brendan and the club and Moussa is private, but I can say it will remain the same just now.

"We are there for the boy to become a better player, for the team to achieve more things and the club wants to keep their best players.

"If Celtic want to sell Moussa it will be a common decision which is taken between everyone. But at the moment I can be no clearer in saying there is no discussion between me and Celtic about Moussa leaving in the summer or even next January."
