BREAKING: Virgil van Dijk hands in official transfer request at Southampton

Since then, he has been a rock in the Southampton back-line and gradually established himself as one of the most dependable centre-backs in the English top flight, which attracted the attention of big clubs like Chelsea and Liverpool.

Liverpool publicly dropped their interest in signing him earlier in the close season after Southampton threatened to report them to the Premier League for an illegal approach.

The manner of van Dijk's statement means it is highly unlikely that he will feature for the club in the future, however Southampton seem determined to reject any offers that may come in for him.

The Dutch center half has submitted a transfer request to Southampton. Van Dijk still has his heart set on a move to Liverpool, but Manchester City and Chelsea are interested.

Former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp also claimed that he thinks (Sky Sports) that the 26-year-old defender will join the Merseysiders this summer.

"I'm not sure how it's going to go once the season starts, has he [Wenger] got something else up his sleeve?"

Southampton have long been admired as a club that is intelligently run.

Transfer request submitted and statement made, Van Dijk has played his hand.

'I would also like to make clear that I have never once refused to train.

Liverpool remain the firm favourites as van Dijk is understood to be keen to play under Klopp at Anfield and the Express claim they are set to revive their attempts to secure a £60m deal.

"What I said is the truth".

The last player Liverpool signed from Bayer Leverkusen was Emre Can and he has turned out to be a very smart acquisition. The two clubs with confirmed interest are Liverpool and Chelsea.

Paper Round's view: Mourinho is respectfully letting Bale and Real know that there is an easy exit for the player should they decide to move for Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe.

The south coast club are gearing up for their first Premier League campaign and chairman Tony Bloom admits the cost of adding quality to manager Chris Hughton's first-team squad has taken him by surprise.

Meanwhile, Virgil van Dijk, their disgraced former captain, is watching on enviously from the stands, his place in the Netherlands team for the upcoming World Cup in Russia under threat having not kicked a ball in anger all season.
