Southampton boss Pellegrino: I will decide van Dijk's future

Southampton boss Pellegrino: I will decide van Dijk's future

"In the Premier League, every single team is very tough, in every second you can lose or you can win, so we have to prepare for these moments".

Saints chairman Ralph Krueger insisted Van Dijk was not for sale in the final weeks of the transfer window, and Pellegrino appreciated the strong stance.

VVD got as close to the AVFC players as he did to a LFC move. VVD now plays football for Southampton FC.

However it is claimed that Liverpool remain the player's first choice.

Liverpool however were cautious in their interest after being forced to issue a humiliating public apology to Southampton in June after it emerged the club had made an illegal approach in their initial attempts to sign the player.

Alas, it seemed destined to be the star-crossed transfer that never was-except yet, just yet, it still might ultimately be-at least according to someone named Ian McGarry, who knows stuff about things.

It appeared a move to either Chelsea or Liverpool was on the cards.

"But I go back to the original point in that Van Dijk has a good chance of moving in January where I would say Sanchez and Coutinho don't".

It will be some time until we see van Dijk don the red and white of Southampton once again, but many Saints fans will be pleased at the thought of that unexpected luxury given a tumultuous summer transfer window. One of the most likeable and trustworthy son-of-a-guns on the web has made his prediction.

"That, of course, would then give them a little bit more augmentation to their squad, and of course their defence for the run in".
