Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk has committed his short term future to the Saints and will not look for a move in January, according to reports from The Mirror.

The former Celtic defender has been one of the standout performers in the Premier League since his move to the south coast in 2015.


The centre-half missed his first ever league game for the saints when he was sent off against West Brom and missed the clash with former manager Ronald Koeman and his Everton side.

According to the report, the Netherlands international, who is reportedly being chased by Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton, appreciates what his club have done for him in his career and will not look to leave them behind halfway through the season.

The 25-year-old, who has taken the captain’s armband in recent weeks in the wake of Jose Fonte’s transfer request, has been rated at up to £60m, a fee which could break the record for a defender deal set when David Luiz joined Paris Saint-Germain for £50m.
