Kevin de Bruyne doesn't want another loan move away from Chelsea this season.
The Belgium midfielder spent last season at Werder Bremen and is yet to play for the club since he was signed for £7million 18 months ago.
"The manager called me back and said that I have to stay," he said. "If he gives me chances, then I have to prove myself on the pitch.
"I can talk all I want but if I don't show myself on the pitch, I will not get a lot of chances, that's for sure. I'm confident in myself and I'm ready to fight for my spot."
