Dembele has now returned to his parent club Brest in Ligue 1, but his future may end up elsewhere by the end of the summer, with a number of clubs interested in his signature.

Football Insider report Derby are now eyeing up a move for the attacking midfielder following their promotion to the Championship, and are said to be open to both a loan or a permanent deal.

The likes of Everton, West Ham, Nottingham Forest, Brentford, Southampton, Leeds United, Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday have all been linked with the ex-Blackpool player in recent months.
