Burnley manager Dyche: Drinkwater returning to full training

Burnley manager Sean Dyche says Danny Drinkwater will return to full training next week.

The midfielder, on loan from Chelsea, suffered a badly injured ankle and facial injuries last month after he was attacked outside of a nightclub in Manchester.

"We're hoping by next week he can join in on a day-to-day basis with the first-team squad," said Dyche.

"He needs that now, as it's been a bit of time. He didn't have enough football time when we got here and we just about got him close to that and then he had another period out.

"Now we've got to give him more football time, as in games.

"It's not so easy to get them games but we can make sure that we arrange enough to get him to some kind of speed so that he can at least be part of the group and be active again for us."
