Dembele enjoying Fulham midfield role
Dembele, 24, joined the club from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar in 2010 as a striker but has been operating predominantly in midfield under manager Martin Jol - a position he enjoys.
"Playing in midfield is a position I like, but I know the manager expects different things at different times," he said.
"I personally enjoy being involved in midfield and, when it still means I can go forward, I can show what I can do, like I did against Sunderland last weekend.
"That was a very important victory for us, and now our aim is to win our last game in the league because we want to end up as high as possible."
