Mitchell Dijks claims agent is 'working on' his future with Celtic interested

Celtic

Willem II left back Mitchell Dijks says he will take his time over his future.

Willem II defender Mitchell Dijks has told Voetbal.com that his agent is sorting his future amid speculation surrounding a summer move.

Dijks, 22, joined Ajax as a teenager but found first team football hard to come by in Amsterdam, joining Heerenveen on loan last season before a permanent exit to Willem in the summer of 2014.

Now, the giant left back - who can also fill in at centre half if needed - has impressed so much this season that rumours surround his future, with a host of clubs allegedly interested.

Voetbal International reported this week that former club Ajax have now joined AZ Alkmaar and Feyenoord in the race to sign Dijks, whilst the player himself recently told Voetbal.com that Celtic have made an offer to sign him at the end of the season.

With his future seemingly lying away from Willem, Dijks will have a decision to make this summer - but he says that his agent will sort his future this summer, with plenty of time to make a decision.

"My agent is currently working on it. It's no secret that there are some clubs in the market for me," said Dijks. "The season is now over for us so there is time to make a decision. I let it all come down to me and will think carefully about my decision. We will see what next summer will bring," he added.

Celtic have seen Virgil van Dijk enjoy great success since leaving the Netherlands for Glasgow, and with manager Ronny Deila having little depth behind Emilio Izaguirre at left back, snapping up another to provide competition for the Honduran would be a wise move.

Yet with so much interest in him in his native Netherlands, it may be difficult to persuade him to move to Celtic over a club like Ajax, who Dijks of course has history with.
