Brighton & Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton insists no contact has been made with Celtic over striker Moussa Dembele.

The 21-year-old Frenchman has already netted forty goals for the Scottish champions since joining them from Fulham in June 2016.

“There’s been huge speculation, certainly on this one,” Hughton admitted to BBC Sport. “Categorically, there hasn’t been any communication between the two clubs. Hence he is a name, along with lots of other names.”

The Seagulls require additional firepower having managed only seventeen goals in 22 league games so far this season.
