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.

Chelsea attacker set for new five-year contract?

Hudson-Odoi set for new Blues contract


Chelsea are prepared to reward Callum Hudson-Odoi with a new five-year contract before reintroducing him to first-team action next month.

The youngster has been sidelined for the past four months with an Achilles injury but he has recently returned to first-team training with his teammates.

According to The Telegraph, the west London giants are in advanced negotiations over a new deal with the winger and they are optimistic of committing him to a five-year contract before he makes his comeback.

Hudson-Odoi is currently on a £25,000-a-week package at the Blues and he stands the chance of boosting his salary by at least seven times, should he extend his contract with the club.

The England international is presently contracted to the Capital outfit until the summer of 2020 and has been linked with a big-money move to Bayern Munich in the past.

The German champions seem to have ended their interest following a series of failed bids in January and are unlikely to come up with a renewed approach in the near future.

Kagawa set for La Liga switch
Football Transfer Centre


Japan international and current Borussia Dortmund midfielder Shinji Kagawa looks set to swap Germany for Spain, as reports emerged yesterday that Celta Vigo have agreed a fee to sign the former Man Utd player. Kagawa, who is considered a club legend at Dortmund, is seeking a final European transfer deal before returning to his homeland in 2021.

The 30-year-old has slipped down the pecking order at the Bundesliga side and has been informed he has no future with the side. Kagawa is now ready to move elsewhere in a deal worth approximately 5 million euros.

Speaking in November last year, Kagawa told reporters: “I am not afraid of going to a new country and I have already done Germany and England, now I am thinking about Spain.

“Spain would be the most important challenge in my career, I cannot retire without going there.”

It appears that Turkish duo Galatasaray and Besiktas have missed out on the transfer for Shinji Kagawa after the player opted to make the move to La Liga instead.
