De Jong has only featured from the bench for Lucien Favre’s side this season, and his total minutes on the pitch have only been 95. In these minutes the ex-Twente striker is yet to score a single goal, or even have a shot on target.

Newcastle United have been heavily linked with a move for the 24-year-old, and English media claim they want the deal done by Tuesday.

However speaking to Goal, De Jong claimed that although their is interest from a number of clubs, there is yet to be a concrete offer.

De Jong added, “I still have a week. I just want to play football again. Preferably at Mönchengladbach. If not, then maybe somewhere else.
