Celtic centre-back Virgil van Dijk has ruled out a move away from Celtic in January transfer window, according to manager Ronny Delia.
The Celtic manager Ronny Delia has confirmed that Virgil van Dijk has clearly denied to leave them next month despite of the interest from big sides including Manchester United and Arsenal.
The news would definitely give the Premier League sides a blow as they were eyeing him strongly, now they have to look for the other players in the market.
Ronny Delia told the Express in an interview that his player is very happy and he has a desire to play here for a long time. He is a good talent.
The £10million rated centre-back has been on top European sides radar but despite of signing for them he has decided to stay in Scotland. However, reports still believes that if the right offer comes then the club could change their mind.
The 23-year-old has been a vital asset for Celtic since his move from Groningen in 2013. He has scored six goals in 31 appearances for the Scottish side so far this term.
While Victor Wanyama and Fraser Forster who both joined the Premier League side Southampton from Celtic in recent times have been impressive.
