Hamburg boss Jol resigned to losing De Jong to Man City

Hamburg coach Martin Jol is resigned to losing Nigel de Jong to Manchester City.

The former Tottenham boss told Abendblatt: "Nigel is key to us, no doubt. And the offer from Manchester City tempts him, although I think the most attractive thing for him is playing Premier League football.

"If he leaves us, I feel that we might not just buy a player for one position, I think we will be signing two or three players. It's clearly what we want to do. Losing Nigel is too big a loss."
