Speculation over the 29-year-old Holland midfielder’s future arose following the departure of Clarence Seedorf, who was sacked and replaced by Filippo Inzaghi.

Eager to quell the transfer rumours, De Jong spoke out to deny any upset with the new coaching staff and admits he feels good at the club.

De Jong made 33 Serie A appearances for the Rossoneri last term as well as featuring in eight UEFA Champions League matches and is keen to remain at the club.

"I feel good at Milan and I have no problems in staying next season even if the coach is changed,” De Jong told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I can only assure I haven't asked Milan to leave and I am perfectly happy with the Rossoneri.

"This is not the time to be thinking about club matters. At the moment, I am only concentrating on the World Cup and the Netherlands’ destiny.”

The defensive midfielder has made 45 appearances for the Italian club since his move from Premier League giants Manchester City.

Milan need to hold onto players like this if they are to recover from a very disappointing 2013/14

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
