Liverpool Apologise to Southampton and Officially End Interest In Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool have apologised to Southampton over the Virgil van Dijk transfer fiasco and ended their interest in the player in an online statement.

The Anfield side were linked with the former Celtic star in a potential £60m switch from St Mary’s and the deal looked just about complete until Saints stated they would be asking the Premier League to investigate.

Van Dijk looks certain to move on in the summer and Merseyside was reported to be his preferred destination.

But it looks like the Dutchman may have to turn his attentions elsewhere after Liverpool released a statement, apologising to the board and fans of Southampton for ‘any misunderstanding’.

The statement then went on to say that the club would be ending any interest in the player, much to the disappointment of Reds supporters across the globe.

That means Manchester City and Chelsea could now be back in the race for VVD’s signature and leaves Jurgen Klopp on the hunt for another defender.

Full Statement

Liverpool Football Club would like to put on record our regret over recent media speculation regarding Southampton Football Club and player transfers between the two clubs.

We apologise to the owner, board of directors and fans of Southampton for any misunderstanding regarding Virgil van Dijk.

We respect Southampton’s position and can confirm we have ended any interest in the player.
