Description:
Nigel de Jong () (born 30 November 1984) is a Dutch footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for Premier League club Manchester City and the Netherlands national team.

He joined the Ajax youth academy as a youngster and worked his way through the ranks to make the first team at age seventeen. Two years later, he made his international debut, in an international career that resulted in a 2010 World Cup runner-up medal. De Jong moved on from Ajax in 2006 to join Hamburg in search of first team football and then moved to Manchester City in January 2009 for an estimated £18 million and has since become an important part of City's holding midfield.
