Celtic starlet Karamoko Dembele could be about to provide a big hint as to his international future after it was announced that England and Scotland are set to face each other at youth level.
The 14-year-old has been at the middle of an international tussle between the national sides, with both looking for him to commit his future to them.
Dembele has appeared for both sides at youth level, having played twice for Scotland’s U16s while also making the same number of appearances for England’s U15s.
Dembele is also eligible to appear for the the Ivory Coast through his parent’s birthplaces.
The Daily Record reports that the Celtic youngster now faces a decision to make, with England and Scotland set to face off in an U16 tournament over the summer.
The friendly competition will see young sides from both nations, plus squads from Qatar and Uruguay, compete in Scotland, with the clash between Dembele’s prospective sides set to take place at Stirling’s Forthbank Stadium on the 27th of July.
Dembele was thrust into the limelight as a 13-year-old after being named in Celtic’s U20 squad back in October – a full seven age groups above his own – coming off the bench in a development squad game.
