Sky Sports News has learned after the on-loan Chelsea midfielder was attacked by a gang of men while drunk outside a manchester night club and Danny Drinkwater will meet with Sean Dyche on Monday morning to discuss his future.
Sky Sports News has confirmed newspaper reports on Sunday, which revealed Drinkwater was drinking heavily at the Chinawhite club in Manchester last weekend when a scuffle broke out.
The former Manchester United trainee was thrown out of the club, before being attacked by several men, leaving him with bruises and cuts to his face, and a badly injured ankle.
Chelsea are aware of the incident, and while they are in regular contact with Drinkwater, they are leaving Burnley to deal with the matter in the first instance.
Drinkwater was found guilty of drink driving four months ago, after crashing his car while twice the legal alcohol limit.
This incident is the latest in a long line of difficulties for Drinkwater, since he won the Premier League title with Leicester in 2016, and moved to Chelsea for £35m the following summer.
Gareth Southgate said two years ago the midfielder rejected a call up to the England squad because he did not feel ready to play at that level.
The loan deal with Burnley was an attempt to get the 29-year-old’s career back on track.
He has won three caps, but has not played for England since and has made just five Premier League starts for Chelsea in two years.
