The Dutchman tried and failed to secure a move to Liverpool in the summer. He spent the entirety of the transfer window in isolation as he attempted to force through a deal.
And although he returned to the Saints first-team fold against Stoke on Saturday, the 26-year-old still has his eyes on an exit.
“I’m glad I’m fit again and I can give up 100 percent,” Van Dijk told Fox Sports in the Netherlands.
“I’m not sorry for anything. Of course, I wanted to make a step up, but Southampton did not want me to sell me, but you’re a professional, so now I’ll give everything to the club.
“Halfway through the season, maybe we can see what’s possible.”
