Southampton are still determined to do all they can to stop defender Virgil van Dijk joining Liverpool this summer, in an exclusive transfer story on the Sunday World back page.

Chelsea have been quoted a massive £65m to sign the Dutch defender this summer, in a deal that would make the Dutchman the most expensive defender in football history.

Yet our sources tell us that Southampton are keen not to do business with Liverpool for Van Dijk, after the 'tapping up' controversy that saw the Anfield giants issue an embarrassing public apology to their south coast rivals after a series of illegal approaches for the 25-year-old centre-back. 

You can read the full story of the latest twists in the high stakes Van Dijk transfer saga in the Sunday World, as well as an exclusive interview with Graeme Souness, who suggests Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho and Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola could be hounded out of office next season.
