van dijk ccThe 23-year-old has been linked heavily with a move to England this month with Arsenal, Liverpool and Sunderland all reportedly interested in signing the centre back.

However speaking to Voetbal International after Celtic’s 1-0 friendly defeat to PSV, Van Dijk stated that he doesn’t think Celtic will allow him to leave the club this month.

Van Dijk said, “You never know in football, but for now Celtic will not cooperate with a departure in this transfer period.”

“It would be a boost for my career if i could make a step up, but i have no problem if i remain a little longer in Scotland. Perhaps in the summer something happens as my transfer fee will be smaller after this season, because my contract then only has two years left.

Van Dijk has made 79 appearances for Celtic since joining from Groningen in 2013.
