Early in January, it appeared that De Jong was heading for the PSV exit after Club America made an official offer. However, PSV have decided that they don’t want to let the striker leave until at least the end of the season.

Speaking to AD, De Jong confirmed that he will remain in Eindhoven, “It is now certain that I will stay, yes, at least until the summer.

“PSV wants to go full with me for the championship and I understand that choice.”

On the offer from Club America, De Jong added, “Club América’s president made a personal commitment to my arrival and I have great respect for that. There was a fantastic offer, and it could have been a nice step, but it’s just not the time.

“Maybe the step to Mexico is still an option in the future, I’m waiting for it”,
