Dembele open to move abroad but unlikely to play for another side in England after Tottenham
Mousa Dembele has revealed that he would not play for another club in England if and when he leaves.
However, he also said that he “loves” an adventure and revealed that a move abroad could be on the cards this summer.
Talking to talkSPORT, Dembele said: “Tottenham is my club, my family is happy in London and the children are enrolled in a school – all of which you cannot just leave like that.
“But otherwise I’m open to anything. Since I was little, I am someone who loves an adventure.
“I have already talked about the championship in China with Axel Witsel.
“But I also talked about the MLS to Laurent Ciman and if someone was playing in Bangladesh, I would also ask him for information.

“It will be time to study the options available to me, but I do not see myself playing in another club than Tottenham in England.”
talkSPORT reveals that the 30-year-old powerhouse has had interest from Italy and China as speculation grows that he will be leaving Tottenham this summer.
Football Insider verdict:
Dembele has just one year left on his contract at Tottenham and news of his exit seems to be picking up pace. He suffered through injury last season and manager Mauricio admitted to having to wrap him in cotton wool to get him through the season. The Premier League is a tough place to play and it looks like the physicality of Dembele’s game has caught up with him. He’s currently out in Russia with the Belgium team but admits this could be his last international tournament as well. Dembele has been brilliant for Tottenham, an often unheralded cog in the Pochettino machine and no one would deny him one last lucrative contract, possibly out in China or the more relaxed Serie A. Pochettino’s most important job this summer will be finding a suitable replacement for him and that could be key to Tottenham’s title challenge next season.
