Addressing the rumours this week, Koeman told reporters in Spain: "He [Dembele] is a Barca player. His future depends on what he thinks.
"I haven't spoken to him about his future. We'll see.
"I want to have happy people here, if they [players] aren't happy because they don't play, they can speak to me.
"Dembele hasn't told me anything. If nothing happens, I'm counting on him and he will have options [to play]."
