Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen is set to play superkid Moussa Dembele in their FA Cup tie against Norwich City.

The French forward, 17, made his Fulham debut as a late substitute at West Ham in November and has recently returned to full fitness after injuring his hamstring in that game.

"He is a goalscorer, first and foremost," said Meulensteen. "Moussa knows where the net is and he is clinical in and around the box.

"He has a variety of finishes and he is a good athlete as well. He is a strong player and has got a great personality."

Dembele has been prolific at youth level and is reportedly attracting the interest of Manchester United and Liverpool.

Meulensteen said: "I am looking forward to integrating him more in first-team training.

"There are many other young players coming into the group. That is what I did during my time at Manchester United and I am going to do exactly the same here."
