de jong 1aLast week the Dutchman was linked with a move to Ajax, after Co Adriaanse said he would be the perfect signing for the struggling Eredivisie champions.

However De Jong has responded, telling German newspaper Express, “Ajax is currently not an option for me. Of course it is nice to hear that you are being followed.”

If De Jong did join Ajax then he would be united with his brother Siem, and although the move is not in his mind, Luuk does state its a dream of his to play in the same team.

He said, “It is a dream of Siem and me. For now I remain faithful at Mönchengladbach. I am having a difficult time, but I know my qualities.”

Since moving to Monchengladbach from FC Twente two years ago, De Jong has failed to hold down a starting place in the Bundesliga side, and has lost his place with the national side because of this.

So far this season, De Jong has only appeared four times for the German club, with all of them from the substitutes bench, and no goals scored.
