Chelsea outcast Drinkwater interesting Valencia

Chelsea outcast Danny Drinkwater is interesting Valencia.

Radio Esport Valencia says Valencia are weighing up a surprise loan move to sign Chelsea's forgotten man Drinkwater.

The £35million midfielder has not played a game for the Blues in the last two seasons and endured two miserable loan spells with Burnley and Aston Villa last season, playing just six times across both spells.

Now the LaLiga side want to rescue the Premier League winner with Leicester from his Stamford Bridge nightmare and see him as a 'cheap' option to bolster former Watford boss Javi Gracia's squad.

Valencia are keen on a loan deal for Drinkwater as Chelsea would pay a portion of his salary, with no obligation to buy the player.
