Luuk de Jong insists that he will fight and win back his place in the Borussia Monchengladbach starting lineup.

Borussia Monchengladbach forward Luuk de Jong has insisted that he will not leave the club at the end of the season despite falling down the pecking order in recent weeks.

The 22-year-old, who joined the Bundesliga outfit from Twente last summer, has been used as a substitute in the last two matches and has scored only six goals in the league all season.

"The coach [Lucien Favre] has decided that way," De Jong told Express. "I hope, I can be part of the team again soon and help on the pitch.

"Of course you are disappointed when you are not playing. I need to show I want to play in training every day.

"There have been other strikers who did not have the perfect first year in Bundesliga. I scored important goals and I need to keep on working."

De Jong has made 21 appearances in the Bundesliga all season.
