Celtic drew 1-1 with Suduva in Lithuania

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Moussa Dembele's representatives are in Glasgow holding talks following "big interest" from another club, understood by Sky sources to be Lyon.

The European transfer window shuts on Friday, so teams across the continent will be making last-ditch moves to strengthen their squads before the window slams shut, and Dembele's whereabouts come the end of deadline day could see him on his way back to his homeland.

He said: "The situation with Moussa is he had a lot going on".

Rodgers said: "Moussa and his representatives were at the club today, speaking with the club".

"There is speculation around him. He's fantastic player and a big miss for us, to go back to what we were working on pre-season and to lose him was a blow". It is ongoing discussions.

"(There's) not been an official bid, but interest. We are looking for players to come in and freshen up the squad and also fit in to what we are doing. It's the 'what-if?' scenario.

The game is an action JRPG, and being developed by Cygames, it's probably going to be very interesting, considering the pedigree. Fire Emblem Heroes continues to be the bright spot for the company, having earned an estimated $400 million worldwide.

"You always have to be prepared for that".

Yesterday Rodgers revealed 22-year-old Dembele and his representatives were in talks with the Parkhead club while his team-mates trained in preparation for the second leg of the Europa League play-off tie against Suduva.

Celtic are in the driving seat when it comes to Moussa Dembele's future. But I also read that Marseille were on it. "The club that's interested to our cub, so tells us they are keen to maybe do something". Yes, I think so.

'Moussa's situation is that he came in here for £385,000 to develop and improve and become a better player.

However, Rodgers admitted he could understand the player's desire to move on and test himself overseas after two seasons in this country amid reports that Lyon are preparing to make a £15 million bid. "There are other targets". "He has been a miss for us as he is a big talent, so it is great to have him back and moving so well".
