On 1 September 2015, van Dijk signed a five-year contract with Southampton for a reported £13 million transfer fee.

He made his debut for the Saints on 12 September in a 0–0 draw against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

Two weeks later, Van Dijk marked his third Premier League appearance with his first goal for the club, which came in the form of a header in the 11th minute to put Saints in front, following a set-piece from James Ward-Prowse in a 3–1 home win over Swansea City.

On 7 May 2016, Van Dijk signed a new six-year contract with the Saints.
