Drinkwater set for Chelsea return
Football Transfer Centre


Burnley will reportedly turn down the option to extend the loan contract of midfielder Danny Drinkwater beyond the turn of the year. The 29-year-old joined the Clarets from the Blues on a six-month loan deal in August to resurrect his flagging career but things have failed to pave the way as planned.

Drinkwater has been sidelined from first-team duties since September after getting injured in a brawl outside a nightclub and he has yet to make a Premier League appearance for the Clarets.

According to The Sun, Sean Dyche‘s side have the option of extending the midfielder’s temporary deal by another six months but they are likely to turn down the option.

The former Premier League midfielder has struggled to command regular gametime since his move to Chelsea and he has managed 12 league appearances over the past two years.

Blues boss Frank Lampard has already deemed Drinkwater as surplus to requirements and the midfielder would certainly have to pursue another challenge elsewhere, should Burnley send him back to Stamford Bridge.

Tammy Abraham news

Abraham wants to represent England


Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is reportedly prepared to represent England at the international level rather than switching his allegiance to Nigeria.

The 22-year-old has been in fine form for the Blues this season and he has already amassed seven goals for the club across all competitions.

According to Standard Sport, the marksman is keen on continuing his international career with the Three Lions and he has no plans of representing Nigeria for whom he qualifies through his father.

Abraham has yet to represent Gareth Southgate‘s side in a competitive fixture to date and he has appeared in just two friendlies in November 2017.

He was ignored for the previous set of internationals but reports suggest that he could earn a call-up when the new squad is announced on Thursday.

Abraham has become the undisputed striker in the Blues ranks this term and he is expected to lead the line when they take on Lille in Europe tonight.

The Blues are yet to register a point in the Champions League this term following their slender 1-0 defeat to Valencia in the curtain-raiser last month.

United still in talks for Maguire


Manchester United are reportedly continuing their negotiations to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City despite the Foxes being reluctant to reduce their £80m price tag for the defender.

The England international has been identified as the prime target to strengthen the central defensive department at United but so far, the club have failed to reach an agreement in terms of the transfer fee.

According to The Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils are unwilling to offer more than £70m for the centre-back but they remain hopeful of convincing the Foxes into a sale.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers has recently indicated that the club find themselves under no pressure to sell the 26-year-old, though their hand may be forced, if the defender pushes for a departure.

Aside from Maguire, the Red Devils have been fancied to sign Bruno Fernandes from Sporting and reports have indicated that they are close to agreeing a deal worth £64m for the Portugal international.
