Landzaat joined The Latics from AZ Alkmaar 12 months ago but has been linked with a move back to the Eredivisie this summer.
Feyenoord have expressed an interest in Landzaat but he has no intention of going anywhere until he has had more success with Wigan.
"Before I think about a return to Holland, I first want to prove myself in England," he told AD Sportwereld.
"I don't have the feeling that I am done in England after only one season at Wigan Athletic."
Landzaat made 33 appearances in his debut season at Wigan and believes playing regularly in the Premier League can only boost his chances of being selected by Holland coach Marco van Basten.
He explained: "Staying at Wigan has consequences for me playing in Oranje.
"The level of play in the Premier League is enormous. Each week you play against big clubs in beautiful stadiums.
"The game play is so fast here. In England I really became stronger as a player and I am still growing.
"That is also nice for the Dutch national team."
