Van Dijk Visits London But Is Not Leaving Southampton
Whilst Southampton`s chairman Ralph Krueger is denying that Virgil Van Dijk is leaving the St Mary`s based side this summer, the player himself is letting it be known he`s in London.Van Dijk has submitted a transfer request but the club are still reluctant to let him go.
The The Independent quote Kruegar as saying,
"Virgil is not for sale in this window and it's not personal. It's not about him, it's about an overall much, much, much bigger picture - a change of course for Southampton."
Liverpool have been linked to the centre back but had to pull back from a move and apologise when Southampton complained to the Premier League over an alleged illegal approach. Chelsea have been monitoring the situation.
Meanwhile, The Daily Star report that one of Van Dijk`s associate`s has posted a picture of the wantaway Dutchman on his Instagram account. The post is captioned London and tagged 'Big Dog`. The post was subsequently deleted.
The story connects London to the more likely possibility of Chelsea making the signing. Because of course, Liverpool`s transfer committee are unable to carry out negotiations away from Merseyside. Watch this space.
