Blackett hoping Southampton target van Dijk remains with Celtic

Celtic signing Tyler Blackett hopes Virgil van Dijk remains with the club..


Blackett, who joined the Hoops on loan from Manchester United on Monday, wishes to form a defensive partnership with the Dutch defender, who continues to be heavily linked with a move to Southampton.

"Obviously van Dijk has been a good player for this club," Blackett said after completing his move to Parkhead.

"Right now he is still here and that's always good for the club and I hope he stays here as well so I can play alongside him.

"I'm just hoping to do well and hopefully do what I can to be a good player for this club.

"I'm just focused on my position here and now I'm here I just want to do well personally and see what comes."
