Danny Drinkwater confirms his departure this summer

Danny Drinkwater will leave Chelsea on a free transfer.

The 32-year-old midfielder joined the Blues in 2017 from Leicester City and made only 23 appearances in the process.

He mostly spent the last five seasons out on loan at Aston Villa, Burnley, Kasimpasa and most recently Reading.

He suggests he was treated poorly at Chelsea although his injuries and off-field behaviour were some of the reasons behind his failed move.

‘My time at Chelsea has come to an end… actually feels really strange writing this. Me, the club and fans are hugely disappointed with the outcome there is no doubt about that,’ Drinkwater wrote on Instagram.

‘Injuries, how I have been treated, mistakes I have made, issues of the pitch, lack of game time… the list of excuses could be endless but I would not and can not change what’s happened.

‘Football’s a fantastic sport but this for both parties was a business move gone wrong, it’s as black and white as that.

‘To the Chelsea fans I apologise for how this has turned out I would of loved for you to see me at my best in that shirt doing what I love. All the best x.’
