Van Dijk Rejects Arsenal, Man United

Virgil Van Dijk insists he has no desire to leave Celtic in the near future.

The 23-year-old has been key in the heart of Celtic’s defence this term, with the Scottish Premiership leaders conceding just 14 goals in 28 outings.

His fine form has attracted interest from Premier League heavyweights Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United.

Hoops boss Ronny Deila is reportedly open to offers in the region of £10m, but the former Netherlands Under-21 international is keen to stay.

He said: “Every player wants to develop but I know, like everyone, Celtic is an amazing club, a very big club, and you don’t want to leave Celtic for a lesser club.

“There was a lot of speculation and a lot of talk last summer that I wanted to leave and everyone was not so positive around me.

“But I just enjoy playing here.

“I am still only 23 and I am learning every day and until the time is there I just want to talk about Celtic and nothing else.
