Chelsea starlet Kevin de Bruyne is refusing to give up on his unstable Stamford Bridge career, according to the Evening Standard.
The 22-year-old has endured a rough few weeks at the west London club and was left out of the last two Chelsea squads by manager Jose Mourinho due to a below par performance in the Capital One Cup against Swindon.
Subsequently speculation has been rife that the former Genk man could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge, with a number of clubs, including Werder Bremen- whom he was on loan at last year- linked with a move for him.
However De Bruyne remains committed to proving himself at the Blues, despite facing strong competition from a number of top quality players including Juan Mata and Eden Hazard.
Reports suggest he could go out on loan to garner more first-team experience at another club, but it's thought that De Bruyne wants to ensure that no move in the near future is a permanent one.
