Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele is being offered multiple options to exit the club as he continues to receive limited game time, with Aston Villa and Newcastle United both making their interest in the Belgian known.
Dembele joined Tottenham from Fulham in the summer of 2012 and while the 26-year-old has received a decent amount of time on the pitch this season he appears to have fallen out of favour with Andre Villas-Boas recently, starting just two of the last five games for the side.
Dembele made his frustrations over the current situation clear to Belgian newspaper Nieuwsblade, saying: "I can not be satisfied with it, of course, I just want to play as many games.
"The coach explained that he makes a tactical choice, he wants more defensive players in midfield."
And with that in mind the Express are reporting that Dembele has attracted interest from both Newcastle and Aston Villa as he looks at his options in the lead-up to January.
After signing four midfielders in the summer transfer window there is much competition for places at Spurs and Villas-Boas has so far shown no signs of making a decision over his preferred starting XI.
With the 2014 World Cup on Dembele's mind he wants to be playing as much as possible in order to earn a place on a Belgium side currently overflowing with top-class players.
Southampton, Cardiff and Swansea are also believed to be monitoring Dembele's situation and given his comments it would appear that if one of the clubs can offer him regular football he will push for an exit from Tottenham.
And if he prefers a move abroad, Napoli are also believed to be waiting in the wings with former Liverpool and Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez keeping a close eye on developments.
