Borussia Monchengladbach striker Luuk de Jong has no regrets over his loan spell with Newcastle United.

The Dutchman was not retained by Newcastle for next season.

“Playing in the Premier League is different than in Germany, but I like this way of playing,” he said.

“It’s more physical, but I like it, especially when I play behind the striker. I like being in little pockets behind the striker.

“I try to give the striker chances, and I try to make one-twos with the striker or score myself. I also want to play as a striker, but when I play as a 10, I also do my job.”
