Great in almost every single position. I used him as a CDM together with someone else. It's fair to say that De Jong was outstanding in the defensive point of view, though what surprised me was how he behaved on the offense. On offense I had him set on balanced, hence why he moved up forward quite a bit. The thing that was by far the most remarkable was his passing. His Through balls especially was really important in breaking solid, established defenses apart. His dribbling is amazing and R1/L1 dribbling with him is what I suggest. Screening the ball works well and his skill moves are good. The only thing that brings him down as a box to box is his shooting, though the stats are horrible is shooting does seem alright. I suggest shooting with the outside of his foot outside the box. You shouldn't be afraid to try a shot with him, nor should you try to shoot every time. Last thing I will mention is his ball recovery, he seems to be at the right place at the right time the all the time. This was essential to me, and even started some fatal counter attacks.
