Virgil van Dijk has regained confidence at Southampton, says Maya Yoshida

'He's a really good player' – Chelsea manager Antonio Conte adds fuel to transfer speculation Virgil van Dijk has regained confidence at Southampton, says Maya Yoshida

PEP GUARDIOLA is preparing a January swoop for in-demand defender Virgil van Dijk, according to reports.

Holland centre-back Van Dijk expressed his desire to leave St Mary's last summer, handing in a transfer request amid links with Liverpool and Chelsea.

But the 26-year-old is fit and available for selection.

Van Dijk was missing from the team earlier in the season due to a combination of injury and a desire to force through a move away from St Mary's, with the Netherlands worldwide handing in a transfer request in August.

"I was with Les (Reed, Southampton vice-chairman) talking about that but nobody knows about that". But I can't see how or why a manager would obliquely refer to transfer speculation while answering a question on why a player wasn't on the teamsheet for a match.

"I know Virgil is an important player and around him will be a lot of speculation like other important players in the squad".

The Premier League Champions have been strongly linked with a move for the Dutch global as they look to improve their squad for the second half of the season.

"Van Dijk's future? We have to wait".

Southampton have three games left in the "festive season"; away at Tottenham on Boxing Day, away at Manchester United in one week, and Crystal Palace at home on 2nd January.

"I think we will need all of (the players) fresh and I think we've got enough of a squad to change some players".

"It is normal, I can't control this and I don't want to talk too much about that".

Aston Villa captain John Terry has said that he does not believe that his former club Chelsea should pay more than £55 million if they want to sign Virgil Van Dijk.
