Chelsea set demands for new Drinkwater loan

Chelsea insist Danny Drinkwater will only leave on-loan if his wages are paid in full.

The Sun says club chiefs want Drinkwater's wages paid in full by any club taking him on loan for the second half of the season.

Midfielder Drinkwater, 29, has gone back to Stamford Bridge after barely figuring at Burnley over the last few months.

Aston Villa have looked into a short-term deal for the former England international, while Turkish side Besiktas have also been linked.

But they will have to stump up his full £110,000-a-week wage if they are to take Drinkwater on loan.

Chelsea signed Drinkwater from Leicester in a £35million deal in 2017.
