Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater has returned to Stamford Bridge from his loan spell at Burnley.

After struggling to play any competitive game under Maurizio Sarri last season, Drinkwater joined Burnley on loan with the hope of getting more minutes on the pitch but he played just twice for Burnley.

Drinkwater joined Chelsea from Leicester City for a fee believed to be around £35 million but struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge, making just 23 appearances across two seasons.

Premier League side Aston Villa are reportedly interested in Drinkwater and he could now complete a loan move to Aston Villa.
