De Bruyne To Stay And Fight At Chelsea

Kevin De Bruyne is determined to stay and win a place in the Chelsea first-team.

The young Belgian was miffed to be left out of the Blues’ Champions League squad recently, after a string of poor performances.

He has subsequently been linked to another loan spell in Germany, with Werder Bremen keen to bring him back, and Wolfsburg also reportedly monitoring his situation.

But De Bruyne is tired of being a loan player, and is excited by the challenge before him at Stamford Bridge.

The 22-year-old says he is willing to do whatever it takes to convince Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho that he has a long future in West London.

"I really don't worry. You make it more of a problem than I do,” De Bruyne told La Dernier Heure of his seemingly precarious status at Chelsea.

"Mourinho is the boss, he chooses who plays. We do not talk about it really.

"He tells me when I do something bad, but frankly I haven't heard such negative comments."

"I chose to stay and I have no regrets," he added.

"I continue to fight hard. My chance will come.

"I'm really not concerned about finding a solution in January. That we will have to see."
