Celtic's van Dijk set for England move

Celtic defender Virgil van Dijk will leave the club this summer according to his agent.

The 22-year old Dutch centre-back has starred for the Hoops since his £2.6million move from FC Groningen in the summer but is set to move to a club in England at the end of the season with the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City showing interest.

Van Dijk's agent Henk-Maarten Chin said: "There is certainly interest. Many English clubs are interested in him - the absolute top clubs.

"They watch him and are very keen. There have been no official approaches for Virgil yet but that will come after the season ends.

"There's certainly far more interest in him than we could have dreamed of.

"I expect something will happen for him this summer. The intention would be for him to earn a top transfer."
