Van Dijk unsure on his future

Virgil van Dijk insists he will give 100 per cent to Southampton even though he tried to force through a move to Liverpool in the summer.

The former Celtic defender handed in a transfer request before being forced to train alone while his future was decided.

It is believed that the Dutchman will move to Anfield in January or next summer but the 26-year-old says that for now he is fully committed to Saints.

Van Dijk returned to the side in mid-September as Southampton won 1-0 at Crystal Palace and he has featured in six Premier League matches for Mauricio Pellegrino's team, who are 500/1 to finish in the top half of the Premier League table this term.

The central defender said: "I don't think it's appropriate to comment on anything that happened before. I'm giving 100 per cent for the club, I work hard every day, I help my team-mates and I'm positive and I want to win every game.

"That's the situation right now.

"I'm happy and that's the most important thing. We'll see what happens. I'm just getting back to pace and I feel like I've been growing every game.

"You know, coming back from an eight-month injury is not easy but I'm feeling better every week."

Southampton can be backed at 13/2 to beat Liverpool in their next match on 18th November and at 7/1 to keep a clean sheet in the game.
