Both Arsenal and Manchester City have been keeping tabs on the 22-year-old this season and have been linked with making bids for him after earning rave reviews on both sides of the border since joining the club from Eredivise side FC Groningen in the summer.

However, despite being linked to such sides the Dutch under-21 international has admitted that he is not looking to leave the Bhoys anytime soon, though he is flattered by the interest coming from the Premier League.

“It’s fantastic that such top teams are being linked to you,” he told Dutch magazine Voetbal International.

“I haven’t spoken with anyone yet, but it’s always a good sign, but I am enjoying it here at Celtic. The first six months were fantastic.”

The defender has refused to completely rule out a winter move though, and added: “It’s a cliche, but in football everything is possible.

“What I know is that I am in a good place here at Celtic and that feels excellent.”
