Virgil van Dijk asks for Celtic exit

Published Add your comment

Celtic's Virgil van Dijk has asked to leave Parkhead according to the Sunday Express.

The news comes as Celtic lost out on Champions League football after failing to beat Maribor. 

Marcos Tavares’s second-half goal was enough to send the Slovenian
champions through to the group stages and make Celtic have to settle for the Europa League.


The 6’4” centre-half arrived at Celtic Park for a fee of £2.2 million from Dutch side FC Groningen. The highly rated defender was tipped for a bright future after some impressive performances in Holland, the former-Ajax boss said of Dijk: “Virgil van Dijk has all the qualities of a central defender. He’s big, strong and has footballing ability. He’s one to keep an eye on.”

Clubs will undoubtedly be keeping an eye on the availability of Celtic's Virgil van Dijk as events unfold at club in the coming weeks. It looks unlikely that Celtic will settle for less than three times what they payed for the Dutchman as Celtic boss Ronny Deila looks to cash in.
