With enough players out on loan to make up three sides, it is surprising that Danny Drinkwater remains at Stamford Bridge.
The 28-year-old midfielder, who joined Chelsea in the summer of 2017, finds himself behind Jorginho, Kovacic, Kante, Barkley and probably Fabregas when it comes to the midfield pecking order.
Indeed, it seems that Drinkwater’s only competitive action for Chelsea, in the foreseeable future, could be in the Carabao Cup or the Europa League.
But, according to the news vehicle, the Express, salvation for Drinkwater could come in January.
According to our referenced source, Leicester City, his former club, are keeping tabs on the situation and could make a move to take him back to the King Power Stadium once the transfer window re-opens in the New Year.
Drinkwater has fond memories of his time at Leicester having been part of the 2015 / 2016 team that stormed to the Premier League title.
To us, here at Vital Chelsea, it seems to be the perfect solution to the ongoing problem.
