Celtic striker Moussa Dembele has left Celtic fans with their hearts in their mouths as he posted a picture to his Twitter account on Wednesday.
In the tweet, Dembele is pictured signing what looks like a contract with the teasing words, “They wanted me.”
He also included a hashtag that hints at a big announcement to come.

The good news for celtic fans is that it seems highly unlikely that the player would announce a move away from the club like this.
Speculation was rife that it signified a new boot deal with Adidas, although nothing has been confirmed from official sources.

Striker Dembele signed from Fulham on a free transfer in July 2016 and has been a huge hit at the Scottish club.
The 21-year-old has been linked with numerous top-flight clubs over the summer but so far no move has been forthcoming.
Dembele has made 51 appearances for Celtic, scoring an incredible 32 goals and adding nine assists.
That has put him on the world stage, after making 64 appearances for Fulham and scoring 19 goals.
Dembele is currently injured and hasn’t taken part in Celtic’s two opening victories in the Premiership and the Cup.
Celtic fans will be on tenterhooks now, hoping that their star striker is just teasing them with the social media post.
