Danny Drinkwater hasn’t had the best time of it at Chelsea since joining the club from Leicester in 2017.
However, there is good news for the 29-year-old, as his nightmare in south-west London has come to an end, at least on a temporary basis. He has joined Burnley on loan.
No real surprise initially there, but the actual length of the deal comes to one’s attention. It has been confirmed that the spell will last just six months, meaning he will return to Frank Lampard’s side on January 6th.
The Chelsea fans are perplexed by this development, and have taken to Twitter to let people know their thoughts. You can see some of the best reactions to the news below.
