And so it looks as if our fears are about to be realized!

Indeed, by the time you read this I`d say there is every chance that Moussa Dembele will no longer be a Fulham player.

With Tottenham Hotspur having cash to burn following the sale of Luka Modric, there are very strong mutterings, in the red-top press, that Spurs and Fulham are very close to agreeing a deal whereby Moussa will leave Craven Cottage for White Hart Lane.

The red-tops are in unison that the buy-out clause has been met and that £15 million will be making its way to the Craven Cottage bank account. However, with the transfer window about to slam shut this Friday it doesn`t leave Martin Jol much time to wrap up a deal for a replacement.

  • What a sad day. After the first two league games I thought we were in for a great season and now the heart has been ripped out of the team. That and losing to the Owls.

  • Unless you have a billionaire owner, we’re all ‘selling clubs.’ This is just part of life. I’m not crazy about a move at this late juncture, but at £15m for what he’s ACTUALLY produced during his time at Fulham, I think I would’ve made the same deal. From the beginning, Dembele has looked very impressive on the ball, but the final product has always been lacking. Now, I have a feeling that he might ‘come into his own’ this season, which I’m sure is what Spurs are counting on, but there’s no guarantee and I can’t blame us for taking the money on this occasion. That said, we really do need to get a playmaker in central midfield before the close of the window because final-product or not, Dembele was huge presence in the middle of the pitch.

  • I just heard that the £15m bid triggered the release clause in his contract, so it appears that Fulham had no choice in the matter… in case that makes anyone feel better.

  • I have been going on about Dembele for a while now. Very, very happy he is at Spurs. Fulham seem to be a happy club no matter what happens and always find a way to do well in the PL. Under Jol, i don’t see any problems.

  • could work artilleria not long a go martin j was saying how happy he was still 15 mill not bad
