Celtic assistant boss: Arsenal target will not leave this summer


Celtic assistant boss John Collins says Southampton, Arsenal, Everton and Crystal Palace target Virgil van Dijk will not leave in the summer.

The 23-year-old was already linked with a possible move to the Emirates in last January's transfer window.

But although Collins says that the Dutchman will one day play for one of Europe's giants, he insists that any offers received this summer will be rejected by the Bhoys.

"I believe there is currently no better centre-half in Europe than Virgil," Collins told Sky Sports News HQ.

"I watch Champions League football and Premier League football every week and Virgil is as good as anybody who is playing football in Europe.

"Virgil can play for any team so the important thing is he doesn't think he has to jump ship quick and take the first offer.

"He has to believe in his ability and he can play for a top European club.

"He's at a great club just now and if he keeps working hard then I've no doubt that one day he'll be at a top Champions League club – I'm talking about one of the mega names in Europe.

"I am confident Virgil will stay. He is more settled than he was 12 months ago.

"I am in contact with him even though he is on his holidays and he is looking forward to coming back.

"No matter what you read in the papers he has two years to go on his contract, he has lots of good friends here, the fans love him and we love working with him."
