Van Dijk discusses Saints situation and Liverpool challenge

Virgil van Dijk says “we will just see what happens” after being asked about his future but the defender says he is “happy” now at Southampton.

The centre-half submitted a transfer request in the summer after the Saints refused to sanction a move to Liverpool, with the Reds forced to issue a public apology over the manner of their pursuit.

Speculation persists that Liverpool’s interest remains, but Van Dijk insists that, for now, he is satisfied with life at St Mary’s and he is full focused on helping Mauricio Pellegrino’s side climb the table.

“I don’t think it’s appropriate to comment on anything that happened before,” he told the Daily Echo.

“I’m giving 100 percent for the club, I work hard every day, I help my team-mates and I’m positive and I want to win every game.

“I am happy and that’s the most important thing so we will just see what happens.”

Liverpool provide the next Premier League test for Southampton, who have claimed just five points from the last 18 available.

The 26-year-old believes the international break gives his team-mates the opportunity to prepare properly for the trip to Anfield.

“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,” Van Dijk said.

“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.”
