Burnley confirm Drinkwater return
Danny Drinkwater is returning to Chelsea following his loan which, it is fair to say, has not been a successful one.
He arrived in August and made his debut in the League Cup defeat against Sunderland but then suffered a serious ankle injury in an incident away from football which left him unavailable for a period of time.
His next first team action came only recently when he started the home defeat against Manchester City. He was withdrawn during that game and, despite being on the bench, has not featured at all since.
Sean Dyche said: “Danny will go back, he hasn’t had the pitch time he wanted and needs. I like him as a player and a character; the incident cost him more time than we thought, and we just couldn’t get him enough game time.”Share this page :
