Moussa Dembele has been nominated for a top award in French football.

The Celtic striker has been named on the shortlist for the ‘Trophee de I’Espoir Francais’ French young player of the year award, as awarded by TF1.

Amongst the other nominations are such highly-rated players as Kingsley Coman, Ousmane Dembele, Anthony Martial and Kylian Mbappe.

Dembele won the award last season, and could well win it again after a great first season at Celtic Park.

The Frenchman joined Celtic in 2016 from Fulham, for a reported fee of around half a million pounds.

The fee has proved to be a bargain, as Dembele proved his worth with 32 goals in 49 games, including three in the Champions League.

This season Dembele hasn’t featured as often due to a hamstring issue, but he seems to be getting back to his best, as proven with his first minute goal against PSG last night.

The 21-year-old has seven goals so far this season.

He will be looking to add to his tally of goals and medals this weekend as Celtic face Motherwell in the final of the Betfred Cup at Hampden Park.

The competition holds good memories for the player, as he scored in last season’s final and semi-final.

In other Celtic news, Dembele has said that Celtic must learn from their mistakes in the Champions League
