Drinkwater set for Chelsea return after failed loan stint
Football Transfer Centre


England international Danny Drinkwater is set to return to Chelsea following the conclusion of an unsuccessful loan stint with Premier League side Burnley.

The midfielder made the switch to the Clarets on a six-month loan in August but he shortly picked up an ankle injury after an incident outside a Manchester nightclub.

Since then, Drinkwater was limited to just 59 minutes of gametime in the Premier League and manager Sean Dyche has now confirmed that the midfielder will return to his parent club when his temporary deal expires on Monday.

“He just hasn’t had the pitch-time. Obviously there was a moment in between when we had injuries where he probably would have played, but these things happen in football,” he told via Football.London.

Drinkwater is presently not attracting any interest from Premier League sides and he may have to drop a division to the Championship in the quest for regular playing time.

The former Premier League winner was the subject of interest from Swansea City over the summer and it remains to be seen whether the club are prepared to make a fresh loan approach this month.

James Maddison news

Maddison to United next summer?


Manchester United have reportedly earmarked Leicester City midfielder James Maddison as a top target for next summer’s transfer window.

The Red Devils are said to be eyeing attacking reinforcements next year and Maddison is one of the names that has been constantly linked with the club.

According to The Star, the Mancunian giants are keen on pushing through a transfer deal for Maddison but they may have to wait until the summer with the Foxes reluctant to discuss a mid-season deal.

It is added that the England international won’t come on the cheap for the Red Devils and they are prepared to make a bid of around £80m for his services at the end of the campaign.

Maddison has contributed five goals and three assists for the Foxes in the Premier League. The east Midlands outfit look in a strong position to finish in the top four with a 10-point advantage over fifth-placed Tottenham.
