'He will continue fighting' - De Bruyne's agent rules out Chelsea exit

The midfielder has been ordered to train with the reserves after failing to impress in training, but Patrick De Koster insists his client will prove his worth to Jose Mourinho
Kevin De Bruyne is commited to Chelsea and will "continue fighting" for a first-team berth, according to the midfielder's agent.

After featuring in the club's opening two games of the season, the 22-year-old lost his spot and has now reportedly been forced to train with the reserves after a string of unsatisfactory performances in training.

Werder Bremen general manager, Thomas Echin, recently hinted at interest in a January move back to the side De Bruyne spent last season on loan with, but Patrick De Koster has ruled out an exit.

"This summer we decided to stay with Chelsea and we knew the competition would be hard and that Kevin had to fight," De Koster told Bild. "He will continue fighting.

"I have no contact to other clubs. Even if we were in the transfer period I would not have any contact."

De Koster, though, did reveal concern at his client's lack of playing time, suggesting a prolonged spell out of the first team could damage his chances of representing the Belgium national side.

He add: "For his stand in the national team it would be better if he played frequently."
