Jol dazzled by 'gifted' Dembele

BY foxsports • November 8, 2011

The Belgium international made the move to Craven Cottage from AZ Alkmaar last summer and enjoyed a solid first season in English football. He has continued to show promise at the start of the new campaign and was impressive in Sunday's clash with Tottenham, when Fulham went down 3-1 despite dominating the second half. Reports have now surfaced linking Dembele with a move to Spurs, but Jol clearly has no desire to sell as he values the attacker so highly. Jol expects the 24-year-old to go from strength to strength and emulate the achievements of Tottenham's Dutch playmaker Rafael van der Vaart. "Moussa Dembele is a very gifted player. He gave Tottenham a lot of problems," said Jol. "In a few months, maybe a year, he will be like Rafa van der Vaart. "Dembele will learn and go on to become one of the best players in the Premier League."
