Chelsea's Belgian starlet Kevin de Bruyne is fully committed to staying at Chelsea, despite being made to train with the reserves for poor performance, according to his agent, Patrick de Koster.
Goal reports that De Koster has affirmed that his client wants to fight for his place in the squad and prove his worth to Jose Mourinho, regardless of the fact that there is mass speculation linking with a move away.
The 22-year-old midfielder, who enjoyed a scintillating pre-season had been left out of Mourinho's last two Chelsea squads after producing a disappointing performance in the Capital One Cup against Swindon, and has been made to train with the reserves after failing to work at the required level with the first-team.
Werder Bremen in particular- where De Bruyne spent last season on loan- have been linked with a move to purchase the young midfielder, but his agent has completely ruled out a move away from Stamford Bridge this year, citing that De Bruyne is willing to work to regain his place.
"This summer we decided to stay with Chelsea and we knew the competition would be hard and that Kevin had to fight," De Koster said.
"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."
