Stoke post scout to check on Gladbach striker De Jong

Stoke City are tracking Borussia Monchengladbach striker Luuk de Jong.

Stoke City are tracking Borussia Monchengladbach striker Luuk de Jong.

The Sentinel says De Jong was watched at the weekend when he was an 83rd-minute substitute in Borussia Moenchengladbach's 2-1 home win over Schalke in the Bundesliga.

The 23-year-old Dutch striker has now appeared in 11 of Borussia's 15 fixtures, but all from the bench for a total of only 71 minutes playing time so far this season.

That, together with a reported fall out with manager Lucien Favre last season, appears to leave both him and his club ripe for a parting of the ways.
