Aston Villa set to send Drinkwater back to Chelsea after ugly training ground stoush

Aston Villa are set to send Danny Drinkwater back to parent club Chelsea.

The Sun says reports claim the on-loan Chelsea midfielder, 30, HEADBUTTED team-mate Jota during a violent row on Monday.

Talks about Drinkwater's future are said to have taken place on Tuesday and Villa may now consider cutting short his loan spell — his second of the season after a miserable stint at Burnley.

Drinkwater faces disciplinary action from Villa, including a hefty fine.

He has made just four appearances since joining in January and did not play in Monday's 4-0 thumping at Leicester.
