On the arrival of the la Liga tots, I was able to pick this guy up from my red picks . I play de Jong in CDM next to summer heat Ndombele. If your looking for a holding midfielder with very balanced stats and is able to do it all and dominate in the midfield, then I highly recommend him. His dribbling feels very smooth and very responsive, his shooting is very good and makes him very clinical when in the box. Along with that, during my last weekend league I found that he made very good runs which allowed me to score some insane goals which I thought I never could (4* WF isn't really an issue). In my opinion, I would classify him as one of the top midfielders and I'd say that if your looking to buy other balanced midfielders like Vidal,Goretzka and maybe even Hendo, I think you should save your money and players and give this guy a try. For tactics I used him on balanced and cover center for both attacking and defensive. For me I really enjoy playing him at CDM because of his brilliant stats that make him critical all around. On the other hand, I think he would do well as a central CAM due to his responsiveness and the way in which he is able to position himself to rack up goals for your team.
Dribbling feels very smooth and responsive
Pace is decent but can be better when putting an anchor on him
Defensive awareness is great and tackles are very good to win the ball back for your team
Passing feels very quick and goes straight to the player your giving it to ( you will rarely lose the ball as his passes are very accurate)
The only minor issure I really found with De Jong is his physical but this isn't much of an issue when you stick and anchor on him :)
