SKY SPORTS have reported this morning that Celtic have accepted an £18Million bid from Brighton for Moussa Dembele.
However, these reports seem to be wide of the mark and BBC reporter Chris McLaughlin has moved to quell fears that Moussa was leaving and for such a low fee.
#Celtic source tells me suggestion club has accepted £18m bid for Dembele is “nonsense.”

Sky Sports have chosen Christmas Day to break this news which is quite peculiar. Especially when reports look to be false.
Dembele has set his sights on the Premier League but Brighton would certainly be a step back for the Frenchman who has been courted by some of Europe’s biggest sides.
Celtic fans may be resigned to losing the Frenchman at some point but it won’t be today.
