Celtic defender Van Dijk: Arsenal interest just fantastic

Celtic defender Virgil van Dijk doesn't expect a late winter market move to England in the coming week.

Van Dijk has been linked with Arsenal, Manchester United, Sunderland, Everton and Southampton this month.

He told De Telegraaf: "There are plenty of clubs interested, but from what I hear, the asking price of Celtic is enormous. The club is very clear: They will not let me go in the winter.

"If there is a nice club from England that comes, then we should consider it. I want of course to develop as a player."

Van Dijk added: "It goes terribly fast. I have recently been thinking a bit about it. I am now 23 and have played at Willem II, FC Groningen and Celtic and I am now linked to clubs like Arsenal. That's fantastic!"
