The career of Danny Drinkwater appears to be going from bad to worse since he left Leicester City for Chelsea in 2017, for a reported fee of around £35 million. The central midfielder has never really fitted in at Stamford Bridge, and after two seasons’ worth of chances he spent the first half of this season on loan at Burnley. That didn’t work out too well either. He left the Clarets on January 6 and went to Aston Villa for the rest of the campaign the following day.
Only two months have passed since, and it’s already obvious that they aren’t happy with him at Villa Park either. As reported by several outlets, the 30-year-old was involved in a training ground incident with a teammate, believed to be 28-year-old fellow midfielder Jota, after which he was told to go home. There are even suggestions his loan could be cut short as a result.
Be that as it may, this summer he will return to Chelsea, where he still has two years left on his contract.
