Danny Drinkwater Sent Out On Loan Again By Frank Lampard
Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater has joined Turkish Super Lig side Kasimpasa on loan until the end of the season. He has not played for Chelsea’s first team in almost two and a half years, having last appeared in August 2018. Drinkwater, had a couple of loan spells at Premier League Burnley and Aston Villa last season, however this season he has only appeared for the Chelsea U21 & U23 sides.
Drinkwater, capped three times for England still has 18 months of his five-year contract with Chelsea remaining. Having helped Leicester City win the Premier League title in 2015-16 season, he has failed to make a significant impression at Stamford Bridge since his £35m move to West London making just 23 appearances for the club.
The two loan stints with Premier League rivals Burnley and Aston Villa last term were short lived and controversial, after joining Burnley he injured himself in a Manchester nightclub and featured just twice for the Clarets after his injury before having hisloan terminated early and sent back to Stamford Bridge.
He then joined Aston Villa in the january transfer window, but only played in the first four matches before clashing with team-mate Jota at the clubs training game and he did not play agin for the club.
Drinkwater has so far this season has featured for the Chelsea U21 side in the Papa John Trophy and was sent off whilst playing for their U23’s in a Premier League Two match against Tottenham in December 2020, before being sent out on loan again in the January transfer window to Kasimpasa in Turkey.
