SUNDERLAND have been linked with Celtic’s Virgil van Dijk after making a scouting trip on the Dutch defender.

Reports in Scotland today have indicated that Sunderland representatives watched van Dijk in action during Celtic’s Champions League qualifier against KR Reykjavik on Tuesday.

Sunderland have been on the look-out for a new centre-half this summer after seeing a move for Swansea skipper Ashley Williams fall through.

Van Dijk has been watched by several clubs in the Premier League, although Celtic would need to lower their mooted £10million asking price.
