Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembele given all clear by club docs

Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembele has been given the all clear by the club's medical staff.

AS says Dembele has been given the green light to play again and could be in Barca's Copa del Rey squad for their clash with Celta Vigo on Thursday.

Now fully recovered from a hamstring operation, Dembele could've taken part in the El Clasico triumph at Real Madrid, but coach Ernesto Valverde felt it best to hold him back.

The French youngster has been missing since breaking down on September 16 against Getafe.

Dembele joined Barca in August from Borussia Dortmund for €105m plus a further €40m in bonuses.
