Virgil van Dijk has posted footage of himself running as he attempts to get fit enough for a first team comeback before the end of the season.

The Dutch centre half took to Instagram to share the footage of him running on an anti-gravity treadmill at Staplewood with the caption "time to step it up."

Van Dijk, who has been constantly linked with a £50m summer move away from Saints, has been out injured since January.
