De Jong set for showdown talks over Borussia Monchengladbach future

The striker has been linked with a January move to Stoke City and admits a departure from the Bundesliga club could be on the cards

Borussia Monchengladbach striker Luuk de Jong is set to meet with the club's director of sport Max Eberl to discuss his future.

The 23-year-old has struggled to hit top form since his move from Twente in 2012 and has not started a game or scored in the Bundesliga this season. 

Premier League side Stoke City have been heavily linked with a bid for De Jong in January, with the Netherlands international now set to hold talks with Eberl over his future at the club.

"Next week, we'll put my adviser and my father together with Max Eberl. We'll see what happens after that," he told Bild.

Asked on whether a move to the Britannia Stadium was likely, he added: "You never know. In a transfer period it can go very fast."

De Jong, who found the net six times in the Bundesliga last season, spent three years at Twente before moving to Borussia Park, scoring 25 Eredivisie goals in his final campaign with the club.
