Virgil van Dijk has dismissed reports that he is set to agree a new deal at Liverpool, revealing there’s ‘nothing go on’ at the moment.
The Mirror claimed earlier this month that the best defender in the world was poised to pen an improved contract.
The Dutchman’s current deal still has nearly four years remaining, so a new one would mostly represent a reward for his performances.
But he says there are presently no discussions with the club, and hinted that he will wait for them to initiate talks.
“There is nothing going on, so that’s it,” he told Sky Sports.
“[Holding talks about an extension] is not on me. I saw some reports in the media that I was agreeing a new deal and stuff.
“But I’m not even discussing anything at the moment. The only thing I want to do right now is focus on the games and we’ll see in the future what may happen.”
Interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid has, somewhat inevitably, been reported, but there’s no cause for Reds to be concerned.
Van Dijk, the favourite to land the Ballon D’Or after his game-changing contributions, has no reason whatsoever to leave Anfield.
