Huge boost as Southampton star brought back to the first team

Southampton defender, Virgil van Dijk, has returned to training with the first team after several weeks of absence from the squad.

After the situation where the 26-year-old center-back decided to request a transfer during the previous month, Southampton officials removed the Dutch center-back from the first team. Van Dijk had been practicing alone since.

Throughout the period, several clubs wanted to buy the former Celtic player, and the most serious ones were Liverpool, Chelsea, and Arsenal.

Eventually, none of this teams got the opportunity to sign the Saints defender as the management of the club had issued a statement saying that Van Dijk was not for sale and that no one player is not bigger than the club.

It seems that things are different now and that the two parties have resolved their problems according to Sky Sports. The same source reports that the player is going to be available for Saturday’s clash with Watford.
