Feyenoord defender Stefan de Vrij has dismissed the speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool this summer, according to talkSPORT.

The Merseyside club are looking to revamp their defence this summer having already acquired Kolo Toure from Manchester City and there are question marks over the future of Slovakian international Martin Skrtel who has been linked with moves to Barcelona and Napoli amongst others.

And the highly rated 21-year-old has been followed by Reds boss Brendan Rodgers for the past year, but he has insisted that he will still be with the Dutch side next season having just agreed a fresh deal to keep him there.

When asked if he would move to the Premier League this summer, he said: “No, I just renewed my contract with Feyenoord [until 2015], so I will play for them next year.”

De Vrij first broke into the Feyenoord first team in 2009 and has gone on to become one of the most accomplished young players in the Dutch top flight.

He made 32 appearances last term and is so highly regarded at the club that he was quickly named as captain following Ron Vlaar’s departure to Aston Villa last summer.
