Virgil van Dijk has returned to training at Southampton this week and it’s believed he will come into contention for a return to the pitch this weekend.

Sky Sports reported yesterday that he was back with the first team as we prepare for Watford this weekend.

The Dutchman’s last few months are well documented with transfer madness and he had been training away from the first team as he looked to get back to fitness following the injury that kept him out at the end of last season, but with Southampton standing firm and no sale happening – despite his public statements – he has now been welcomed back into the group and presumably he’s accepted he’s here until at least January.

Sky say he’ll come into contention this weekend for manager Mauricio Pellegrino, so we’ll have to see.

Time to build some bridges?
