Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk has said that he is giving 100% for his club this season.
The Holland international attempted to force through a move to Liverpool in the Summer by handing in a transfer request before being told that he would not be allowed to complete the transfer.
And the former Celtic man has said that he has moved on from that and is giving his all for the south coast club after accepting that he wouldn’t be moving.
“I don’t think it’s appropriate to comment on anything that happened before,” he told the Southampton Daily Echo.
“I’m giving 100% for the club, I work hard every day, I help my team-mates and I’m positive and I want to win every game.
“That’s the situation right now.” he continued.
When he was asked if he had moved on from the transfer saga that saw him miss out on the switch to become part of Jurgen Klopp’s squad, he said that he had.
“I think that’s pretty clear. I’ve been playing, you can judge for yourself. I feel good.” he responded.
“I’m happy and that’s the most important thing. We’ll see what happens.
“I’m just getting back to pace and I feel like I’ve been growing every game.
“You know, coming back from an eight month injury is not easy but I’m feeling better every week.”
“Every game is important and it’s going to be even more important now to get some points and we know we can play very well against everyone.
“But, we just need to keep going, stay positive and work hard every week.
“For now, we need to recharge with some of the players going back to their countries and work hard there as well and come back fit and be ready for Liverpool.” he continued.
Liverpool supporters will be hoping that he is on the other team when the two sides meet in 2018.
