Celtic defender Virgil van Dijk is keen to join Ronald Koeman's Southampton.

The Mirror says Van Dijk is keen to play for his fellow Dutchman Koeman at Southampton.

The 23-year-old Celtic defender is also wanted by Sunderland and Swansea, but Van Dijk would prefer to work with the Saints' new boss.

Celtic want at least £10million for the centre-back, but Southampton, set to rake in around double that amount from the sale of their Croatia defender Dejan Lovren to Liverpool, can easily afford that.
