With a bit of rumour mill speculation this week linking Aston Villa with a supposed interest in former on loan Burnley midfielder Danny Drinkwater, earlier today things sparked to life with reports in the likes of the BBC that we had made contact with Chelsea over the former England man and Premier League winner, and the deal was moving forward.

A short time ago it was claimed that the 29-year-old was on his way to Bodymoor Heath to undergo a medical after Chelsea had agreed to subsidise some of his reported £110,000 a week wage and from our point of view, if he could get back to his former form, he would be the injured John McGinn’s replacement.

Although he impressed at Leicester City during their remarkable year, his £40million transfer to Stamford Bridge has proved to be a flop, with only 12 league showings for them since his arrival and with off pitch issues following his loan to Turf Moor, that deal was cancelled this month.

Many will feel it’s a massive risk given the way his career has turned and we’ve had loans like this before that have not benefitted us…but on the other hand he has reasonable experience which many have been calling out for.

Understandably, fans are mixed.

Would Drinkwater Be A Decent Addition?
