Lyon striker Moussa Dembele has dismissed suggestions that he could pursue a fresh challenge amid the speculated interest from Manchester United.

The 22-year-old notched 20 goals during his debut season with Les Gones last term and his progress has supposedly caught the eye of a number of Premier League clubs including United.

However, speaking to Le 10 Sport, Dembele has ruled out the probability of leaving the French club and indicated that he will remain with Les Gones for the forthcoming campaign.

"I still have four years left on my contract, I will be in Lyon next season," he said.

Dembele, who is currently with the France under-21 side for the European Championship, joined the Ligue 1 giants from Celtic during the final stages of the 2018 summer transfer window.

He has been regularly linked with a move to the Red Devils to replace Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku, but that appears unlikely to happen, based on the recent statement made by him.
