Burnley head coach Sean Dyche has confirmed that Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater will return to his parent club this month.

Drinkwater has had a very unfruitful loan spell at Burnley, starting only one match(against Manchester City) in the Premier League, but that didn't stop Sean Dyche from praising Danny and his professionalism during his press conference today.

"He just hasn’t had the pitch time. He has been a credit to himself with his professionalism, apart from the incident. He has looked after himself and tried to be part of the group. He has just not had the game time that he needs," Dyche said

"I like him as a player and a character. There was an incident that was unfortunate and cost a lot more time than we thought. My respect for him as high as a person and a player."

Aston Villa are reportedly interested in signing Drinkwater on loan from Chelsea this month.
