Celtic defender Virgil Van Dijk has revealed he’s likely to remain in Scotland, despite a host of Premier League clubs being interested in his signature, reports Sky Sports.
The centre-back has been linked with the likes of Arsenal, Southampton and Sunderland as a result of his fine performances in the Celtic defence ever since joining from Groningen in 2013, but has admitted his future looks to be with the Bhoys.
“Interest is fine, it’s always good to have people watching you but I can do nothing with interest and it looks like Celtic don’t want to sell me so it looks like I’m staying here. I’m happy here of course because Celtic is an amazing club and I love being here,” he said.
Van Dijk, 23, has yet to represent his country at senior level, which many felt could see him join a club with a better standard of opponents so he could prove his worth on a larger scale, but the Six foot four inch defender appears happy to at least see the season out before making any decisions on his future.
