DONE DEAL: Aston Villa boss Smith welcomes Drinkwater signing

Aston Villa have completed the loan signing of Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater.

Drinkwater joins from Chelsea until the end of the season. He spent the first-half of the campaign on-loan with Burnley.

The 29-year-old England international brings a wealth of experience with him to Villa Park having helped Leicester win the Premier League title in 2016.

Villa boss Dean Smith said: “Danny was a key member of Leicester City's title winning team and has represented England so he is a vastly experienced player.

“He will strengthen our squad significantly."

Villa will stump up £110,000 per week in wages to Drinkwater during the loan, with the Blues playing on Villa's desperation to bolster their midfield.
