Van Dijk still looking for move


Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk is still looking to make an exit from the Premier League club.

The Holland international handed in a transfer request in the Summer in order to try and force through a switch to Anfield to join Liverpool.

But the south coast outfit were determined not to let him leave and refused to do business and insisted that he remain part of their squad for the start of the season.

The Dutchman has got his head down since the transfer window closed and has rejoined his team-mates as part of new manager Mauricio Pellegrino’s squad.

He is still looking to make a move away from St Mary’s and has identified January as another opportunity to see if he can engineer his way to a higher level.

“Halfway through the season, maybe we can see what’s possible.” he said.

“I wanted to go one step up, but eventually Southampton did not want to let me go.

“You’re a professional, so now I’ll give everything to the club.” he finished.

Liverpool supporters will be hopeful that the former Celtic man is still keen on moving to Anfield and hasn’t reassessed the situation, with Manchester City and Chelsea still keen to sign him.
